Feast and Film: Azul Intangible

Director: Eréndira Valle
2012 • 72 Minutes

The local food movement is growing strong and there has been no better advocate than Spinnakers. Long before it became a trend they were serving locally sourced food. It was only natural that when we wanted to put the spotlight on food we would ask them to do a dinner. Diners will enjoy a 3-course dinner at Spinnakers and then move to the Empire Theatres Victoria for a screening of Azul Intangible. See the Victoria Film Festival 2013 Program Guide for menu details.

Azul Intangible is a voyage through the ocean, showing a new perspective of how we relate to it. It’s a portrait of the exquisiteness, charm and biodiversity that inhabits the northwestern seas of Mexico.

The journey starts in Mexico City and then plunges into depths of the Gulf of California and the Pacific. The camera joins the crew of The Sandman, sailing for several weeks and observing the life that inhabits the waters thriving with beauty and motion.

A female voice is our guide to an underwater world full of sea titans and fantastic ecosystems. Throughout this trip we encounter sperm whales, humpback whales, giant rays, dolphins, underwater forests, and more. Back in Mexico City, the interaction between this marine treasure and the people that live in the cities can be seen through a new perspective.

This documentary unveils the ethereal and intangible quality of the sea as well as the importance of taking steps to preserve these waters, starting now and even from distant cities. The unexpected ending offers subtle audiovisual metaphors that will captivate the viewer.
