Off the Grid: Life on the Mesa

Life lived alone.

Or at least mostly alone, as the drifters and nomads who pop up in this solid low-key documentary prefer to reside far from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

They call a chunk of land stashed out by the Rio Grande, 25 miles from the nearest town, their home and build a unique community with other like-minded folks.

Some are battling illnesses, of the body or mind, while others just enjoy the sound of (relative) silence.

An interesting companion piece to current Oscar contender Nomadland, this is a fairly-obscure slice-of-life movie worth tracking down again.
