If you miss those special trips with family when you or they were young, this film will take you back there and make you glad.  And watch the trailer for the film below.  It gives a good sense of how this movie doesn’t just tell a story, it pulls you in.   Good for the whole family.

The beautiful but fragile fishing village of Quintana Roo on the Mexican coast is the setting for the Mexican film Alamar.  A young father of Mayan descent takes his five-year-old son on a fishing trip.  Their time together is also fragile.  The boy’s mother is separating from his father and taking the boy back to Italy.  But the morning sun glistens, the fish are biting and the two quietly form a bond in the days they have together.  Real life father and son, Jorge Machado and Natan Machado Palombini star.  


The Murphy Library is showing Alamar Thursday, December 23 at 3:15 p.m. and again at 6 p.m.  The film runs 73 minutes and would be perfect for all ages and generations.  Call the library at 837-2417.
