I’ve been knitting a lot lately and have been enjoying some wonderful video while I knit. I thought I’d share some of the best. These are all available on Netflix here in México – hopefully you can find them wherever you are.
This first one is the full documentary, 53 minutes titled Living on One Dollar. In it four friends and their video camera head to rural Guatemala to do just that. It was a very moving and thought provoking film, so pick up your knitting needles and take a look!
Uh Oh, It’s Now Unavailable. Maybe Check Netflix?
The next one has been out for a while (2012) but I’d never gotten around to it. I watched it in Spanish but I believe there are subtitles available. The music is amazing and you really absorb the feel of México and the energy and spirit of the people here. And don’t worry, at the end of the film they will tell you the names of all the artists and speakers. You’ll even see a few seconds here and there of Mazatlán! A trailer is below.
The next one was such a delight. Titled The Bat Man of Mexico it is a BBC documentary about Rodrigo Medellin and his passion for the endangered bats of México. The film is beautifully photographed and is in English. Did you know that we wouldn’t have tequila without bats? See? You just have to see it!
