Shot on 16mm
Over 4 years ago Steve Jones got in touch with us and said that he was putting a film together. He said it would be cold and wet where he was going and that he needed some products for him and crew, to keep them safe, to keep them warm.
We didn't ask too many questions, we just liked the sound of him and his project - so with a bit of chance and a fairly polished intuition, we jumped in with both feet.
Years later a film has been made, it's beautiful and to be a part of its production (even if it's just to keep a man and his crew warm), it feels good, really good.
A bit about the film, the trailer and its UK tour dates below - we'll all be there - super stoked Steve - biggest hugs.
‘El Mar, Mi Alma’ – An intimate encounter with the Chilean sea.
Shot entirely on 16mm '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 unconcious 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, centred around the intimate act of surfing.
Starring – Dave Rastovich, Ramon Navarro, Gabriel Villaran, Dane Ward, Chris Del Moro, Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, Joel Parkinson, Leo Acevedo, Diego Medina and Cristian Merello.
