Alamar (2009)

Mexico’s coast houses one of the world’s most beautiful atoll reefs and the country is trying to gain a World Heritage site honour for Banco Chinchorro, which is displayed to beautiful use in Alamar. This may be the reason for making the landscape such a large part of this film, as well as director Pedro Gonzalez-Rubio’s love for documentaries. He’s created a hybrid of style (and colour) for his latest feature, showing a carefree way of life as a father and son revisit their Mayan origins.
