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 unconscious 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, centered around the intimate act of surfing.
