Described as “One of the most important surf movies of our times” and YOU have the opportunity to come along and see it on the big screen. “Somewhere Near Tapachula” is a truly inspiring story of love, life and hope. Set in Tapachula, Mexico, this film follows the stories of 54 children from lives of poverty, trauma and abuse, and their journey to Mission Mexico, a children’s refuge founded by Australian couple Pam and Alan Skuse.

It also focuses on the unique surf community that they have pioneered in Tapachula, a coastal city with no other wave riders. The surfing experience has had a phenomenal impact on the children, creating an escape from their unimaginable pasts.

“Somewhere Near Tapachula” will challenge you with the important things in life and open your eyes to the power of riding waves, wether you are a surfer or not.

The film recently won the People’s choice award at Yallingup Surfilm Festival in W.A. It has also featured in the latest edition of Surfing World Australia and this week’s copy of Grazia Magazine. “Somewhere Near Tapachula” has also been nominated for the “Heart of Gold Award” in the International Film Festival held in Gympie this month.

You can check out the teaser trailer on www.somewhereneartapachula.com

This is going to be a fantastic night with live entertainment, art show, prizes and giveaways, Q&A with the director and producer and one of the stars from the film. 100% of profits go to Mission Mexico Children’s Refuge.

As Christmas is getting closer, we are putting together a little fundraiser for the Children’s Refuge that my husband’s parents run in Mexico. Pam and Alan Skuse care for over 40 children on a daily basis to improve the quality of life they live. Most of these children are victims of abuse, extreme poverty and in some cases orphans.

 

We are selling Christmas Cards to help the Mission Mexico Refuge.

A pack of 10 cards is $10. All cards were designed by the children. 
If you would like to support this fundraiser, please email me; talaricol@hotmail.com with the quantity you would like. Please let all your friends know.

 

Deadline for orders is the 1st of December 2009.
