At ‘Celebration of Whimsy Theater’ New York
A visual love song to the surf blessed land of Chile 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. ‘El Mar, Mi Alma’ is a visual tone poem, a blend of images and music embracing cinematic surfing sequences, coastal landscapes, insightful commentary, poetry, 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 wondrous act of surfing.
Featuring; Dave Rastovich, Ramon Navarro, Gabriel Villarán, Dane Ward, Chris Del Moro, Crystal Thornburg, Joel Parkinson, Christian Merello and Diego Medina.
