The Lure of This Land – with Filmmaker Alexandra Lexton

Musings on the internal voyage of wanderers while interviewing ex-pats living in Belize

Wildlife filmmakers, a zoo director, ecotourism hosts, a Rastafarian chef, a Civil War descendant, Mennonites, and Afro-Caribbeans are among the fascinating people who have taken a leap into the unknown and found belonging in Belize.

Interwoven with these profiles, director Alexandra Lexton muses on the internal voyage of the wanderer: themes of leaving home to find home and letting go of the known for a truer, unexpected resonance with place and people and purpose.

Glimpsed here is a universal longing for something meaningful and real.
