This is the teaser for a surf documentary one of my producers in Mexico City, Aaron Acosta is producing.
"Chacahua is a touristic island in the shore of Oaxaca. Its inhabitants have been invisible for the world, including the eyes which visit it. Remnants of paradise (vestigios del paraiso) tells the story of some kids of this island who dream about participating in a surf contest which will be held this year. The underlying features of their traditions and a life apparently idilic will show the social problems which affect the community: absent parents due to vices or migration, a poor education and moral dilemmas regarding the environmental concern. Facing this scenario, Remnants of paradise (vestigios del paraiso) is a movie that questions if the children of Chacahua are doomed to repeat their ancestors' fate or, in contrary, hopes have a future."
