One day, Chilo arrives on an isolated beach in the Sea of Cortez. It looks like paradise, but wading through the water with a distant look on his face, Chilo is adrift. He befriends Omar, the one man who calls this place home. A philosophical fisherman, Omar patiently teaches Chilo how to work the water. When the sun sets, the two gather in Chilo’s shack and drink late into the night, baring their souls to one another, dipping their toes into vulnerable waters. It is a miracle how T/F 2019 True Vision recipient Nuria Ibáñez Castañeda found a way for her observational camera to seamlessly enter this beautiful, delicate and ambiguous relationship. There is no denying the staggering intimacy suffusing her film, the electricity that exists between these two men, or the overwhelming emotions generated by their journey.
