The Lure of this land

THE LURE OF THIS LAND

The Lure of this Land is an exploration of why people leave the places they know and love. Why do they leave their homelands? What are they looking for? And what do they find? Filmmaker Alexandra Lexton came to Belize and found these stories: A story of a place, the story of those willing to get lost, and the more personal internal voyage of the foreigner in a foreign land. Among others, we meet people who have left everything to regenerate and rediscover themselves: Zookeeper Sharon Matola who has made an indigenous Zoo out of Belize's rescued, endangered and indigenous creatures, nature documentary filmmakers Richard and Carol Foster, and eco lodge originators, Mick and Lucy Fleming. Behind every door is another story, another person who had the drive to change their life... and to risk for a time getting lost.
