Slow Fish in Action


This award-winning documentary-style film by Pedro Gonzáles Rubio tells the true story of five-year-old Natan. Before his Italian mother takes him to live in Rome, his young fisherman father, who is of Mayan origin, takes Natan on a journey into the open sea. The film was shot in the stunning Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, the largest coral atoll in the Northern Hemisphere.

The dialog between father and son, often based more on gestures than words, reveals great tenderness. This aspect, along with the spectacular cinematography, has helped the film win prizes at 15 different film festivals around the world.

With the profits from Alamar, RAZONATURA AC, in collaboration with the fishing cooperatives and CONANP, will strengthen the existing projects for the conservation and recovery of fish stocks in the Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve.
