Below is the trailer for a documentary film called Somewhere Near Tapachula about a mission in Tapachula, Chiapas for Mexican children with troubled pasts. In addition to shelter and schooling, the mission takes the children on weekly trips to the beach. Apparently, in 2004, someone left a surfboard at the mission for the children to use on these weekly trips to the ocean and since then, the process of learning to ride waves has given these kids a new outlook on life.
The blog I found the documentary on said the movie was to be released in October of 2009, and the film’s website shows tour dates from February to April (but no year). Oh wait, the film has its own blog, and… the tour is already over. If anyone has any info on where you can purchase/view the film in its entirety, please post in the comments section.[vsw id=”9155334&” source=”vimeo” width=”425″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]
