The rusting relic of a failed 1960s development boom, the Salton Sea is a barren Californian landscape often seen as a symbol of the failure of the American Dream. Once a thriving resort, Bombay Beach is now little more than a shanty ghost town in the poorest county of California. Home to troubled young soul Benny, aspiring footballer Ceejay taking refuge from LA gang culture and Red, a whisky and cigarettes soaked ex oil field worker, this is a beautifully ethereal portrait of a forgotten town brought back to life through choreographed sequences and music composed for the film by Bob Dylan and Beirut. Winner of Best Documentary at Tribeca Film Festival.
