La Maestra


La Maestra (The Teacher) is an award-winning documentary
that profiles Mayra Aguilar, a young teacher in a tiny
fishing village in Baja, Mexico, who decides to follow her
own path by becoming the first Mexican woman in her area
to surf, and in doing so, changes her community’s
expectations of what’s appropriate for women. Mayra also
talks about the challenges facing her community, and the
gift of nature that has drawn thousands of tourists over
the years, forever changing her hometown. In this regard,
the film is also a subtle commentary on the impact
outsiders have on small communities and the need for all
of us to be more mindful visitors.
