To the Sea (Alamar)

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.

August 20, 2010 - Boston.com - Loren King

A luminous love letter to the Banco Chinchorro, the largest coral reef off Mexico’s coast, and to the tender bonds between a father and son, “Alamar’’ (“To the Sea’’) is a quasi-documentary that doesn’t offer much in the way of plot. Instead, writer, editor, director, and cinematographer Pedro González-Rubio takes the viewer on a leisurely journey through the timeless ritual of catching and cleaning fish, and the natural progression of paternal love over the course of a few days.
