Una corriente salvaje, Nuria Ibañez’ third feature film, explores the daily lives and the burgeoning relationship of two men who have chosen to live on an isolated beach in Baja California, Mexico, leaving their separate pasts behind, living off the grid, and fishing to survive. Alone with only the sand and water for company, Omar and Chilo become unlikely friends as they harvest food from the ocean, share meals together, and talk late into the night in this “delightfully intimate and beautifully realized portrait of male companionship.”
Mexico; 2018; Spanish with English subtitles; 72 minutes; not rated.
