It seems I’ve been on a bit of a Patagonia tangent lately, if this post and my last post are any indication! I saw a great movie this month called “El faro de las orcas,” or “The Lighthouse of the Orcas.”
This is a beautiful film that captures life at the edge of the world along the coast in Patagonia. It tells the based-on-true-life story of a man who lives and works at the lighthouse studying orca whales. A woman and her autistic son come to visit him from Spain after hearing of his work in the hopes that the son’s emotions can be calmed by spending time with the whales.
You can read a longer review of the movie here, watch a trailer here, and learn about the real-life protagonist of the story here.

I watched this movie last week and it made me want to go to Patagonia. It was a beautifully filmed, gentle story – exactly the kind of movie I like. And I was able to practice my Spanish listening skills too. 🙂
