Bombay Beach
Screened in January 2012
Director: Alma Har'el. Documentary about an eccentric, impoverished community on the Salton Sea in Southern California. Subjects include Benny Parrish, Pamela Parrish, Mike Parrish, Dorran "Red" Forgy, and CeeJay Thompson.
Twitter Capsule: Like a real-life George Washington, or Dark Days above ground. Aggressively directed yet very candid. Could go deeper?
