Zihuatanejo (Allá en la Costa Grande) premiere December 1, 2020 (video)


At last! After a long journey through film festivals inside and outside of Mexico, the premiere of our documentary feature film ZIHUATANEJO (THERE ON THE COSTA GRANDE) has arrived.

An independent Mexican film directed and written by Erick Rams, produced by Sinestesia Ads Media & Films and Onda Craneal Films.

On December 1, it will be available on Amazon Prime Video Direct and more platforms will be added shortly.

Thanks for helping us spread the word! Synopsis:

The community of Zihuatanejo, Mexico is symbolically subjected to a process of introspection through a temazcal bath. This results in an exploration that goes from its millennial past until reaching the present moment where the inhabitants of Zihuatanejo live the challenge of prospering from tourism; in the midst of problems such as the contamination of the Zihuatanejo Bay and the violence of organized crime.
