The World Premier of Corazón played to a pack crowd in Colorado on the first stop of the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour this weekend.
Mike Dawes ties a bimini twist on the porch of an old crumbling lighthouse located where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean sea. This short film is a real story about runaways, travelers, anglers, brothers, humans and hearts.
FLY FISHING FILM TOUR Off the Grid Studios: Filmed on location in Mexico and Wyoming
I am pleased to announce the trailer for the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour film, Corazón has just dropped. This is a film created by our collective group, Off The Grid Studios. It was great to spend time working with such an inspiring story with an incredible group of individuals.
CORAZON || FILM “On the tiny island of Holbox, a stone’s throw from the Mexico mainland, lives a legendary angler named Sandflea. People from all over the world travel here to fish with him. One such gringo is Mike Dawes, who stumbled into Sandflea’s welcoming home years ago and quickly became family. On land, Sandflea’s a dad, a grandfather, the unofficial mayor, a teacher, and the main source of dinner for his neighbors and friends. On the water, he’s as schooled as they come when it comes to permit and tarpon. But a childhood bout of Scarlet fever weakened Sandflea’s heart and has led him to multiple surgeries. His willingness to share with all of us makes it all the more ironic . . . the guy with the biggest heart needs a new one. This is the story of the unlikely friendship between two anglers and the willingness of the fly fishing industry to rally around a guide in need.”
OFF THE GRID STUDIOS | CORAZÓN New film for the 2017 Fly Fishing Film Tour
And that’s a wrap! We just finished the last scenes for the new film project premiering in 2017 with the Fly Fishing Film Tour and we all couldn’t be more pleased. The filming and interviews are completed and our editors, writers and music engineers are putting their final touches on to the project. A big thanks to the man with a giant heart, “Sandflea”! We are all going to miss Mrs. Sandflea’s home cooking! And a huge thanks to all those who opened their door to the production team, we miss certainly Mexico already.
