In Chile, the sea is the great provider for many of its inhabitants. It is also a place to unwind and enjoy life. The new trailer for El Mar, Mi Alma, made by Rebel Waltz Films, is a documentary that is split into 2 parts. The first is a surf film which details the rich cultural significance of surfing the Chilean coastline. The second part is about Chile’s relationship with the sea and how its affects its people. Rebel Waltz Films strikes a poetic balance with cinematic surfing sequences and Chile’s breathtaking landscapes. Insightful commentary helps move their grand poem along without disrupting the flow of images and music. If you had a notion to head to South America for surfing, this film may make the decision for you.
