Nicolas Steiner’s sublime exploration of lives lived on the fringe is set in a seemingly apocalyptic world that happens to be our own. Living above ground, April dons a spacesuit to simulate life on Mars as part of a remote science program in Utah, while Dave has left modern society for an abandoned military bunker in the California desert. Meanwhile, finding shelter below in Las Vegas storm drains, are Lalo, Rick, and Cindy, who contend with frequent, dangerous flooding to survive on their own terms. “…[Above and Below] treats its subjects with a dignity that transcends judgment and a poetic sensibility that ranks it among the year’s most remarkable cinematic discoveries.?—Variety. In English. (110 mins.)

Filmography: Battle of the Queens (2015)

Interests: Documentary Views.
