OFFICIAL SELECTION
2010 NEWPORT BEACH FILM FESTIVAL


Somewhere Near Tapachula is a truly inspiring story of love, life and hope. Set in Tapachula, Mexico, this documentary looks at the horrific childhoods of 45 kids, their new life at Mision Mexico, and the exciting future of following their dreams. It also focuses on the unique surf community that they have pioneered in Tapachula, a coastal city with no other wave riders. To these kids the ocean is not just a place of fun, its an escape from what life used to be. This movie will challenge you with the important things in life, and open your eyes to the power of riding waves, whether you are a surfer or not.
