Off the Grid: Life in the Mesa
I came across this particular film and I think it could fall under ethnographic film because of the "tribe" that it is being documented from the deserts of New Mexico. It's a group of families out on the desert that do not have much food and set up a practically "no moral" standard for living. Yet at the same time they believe that violence is a way a of bringing justice. However there may not be much of an ethnographic authority on the filmmakers part because it appears that subjects have more say in what happens with what is show with anything.
