SURF MOVIE SUMMARY
Shot entirely on 16mm, award winning film "El Mar, Mi Alma" is a visual love song to the surf blessed land of Chile, its people, and the ocean that defines it.
With a long and diverse coastline Chile is a country not only shaped by its geography; the sea occupies a mystical and poetic, conscious and unconcious place within the cultural fabric of the nation.
The film is a visual tone poem, a blend of images and music featuring cinematic surfing sequences, coastal landscapes, insightful commentary and the movements of the cast on a unique surfing journey.
With environmental themes and political undercurrent, the film paints a picture of Chile's beauty and association with the sea, centred around the intimate act of surfing.
