The Lure of This Land

Directed by Alexandra A Lexton

The Lure of this Land is an exploration of why people leave the places they know and love. 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 others. And the more personal story of the foreigner in a foreign land. We meet people who have left everything they know to regenerate and rediscover themselves. Zookeeper Sharon Matola who has made an indigenous zoo out of Belize’s wild and threatened creatures, filmmakers Richard and Carol Foster. And British expats Mick and Lucy Flemming. Behind every door is another person who had the drive to change their life… and to risk for a time getting lost.
