Alamar (To the Sea)
Jorge Machado, Natan Machado Palombini, Nestor Marín / Fiction / Spanish, Italian
Nature and nurture go hand-in-hand, in this tender story of father, son - and fishing
A gently-told blend of documentary and fiction, this highly acclaimed and already multi-award-winning work follows the last summer little Natan will spend with his father in Mexico before a move to Rome. Off the coral reef of Banco Chinchorro, the boy learns about the land and water around him, guided by his father and grandfather. This is poetic filmmaking that foregrounds the peace and beauty of a fragile environment.
