Outdoor Cinema 2013: Alamar
As part of an eight-week film festival, Socrates Sculpture Park will screen Alamar, a love story between father and son, man and nature, water and sky. Set in the turquoise waters of Banco Chinchorro in the Caribbean, home to thousands of species of fish. the film – somewhere between fiction and documentary – tells the story of a young boy whose unwed parents (Italian mother, Mexican father) make him a child of two worlds. A father transports his urban son to this natural paradise to teach him to dive for lobster and fish for barracuda, spending days on a tiny fishing boat and nights in a reed-roofed cabin that floats atop the water. (English subtitles.) The evening will feature regional cuisine from neighborhood restaurants and performances by local musicians and dancers that celebrate Mexican culture.
