Bitter Water is a short film shot over the past year in Baja California Sur, Mexico. The film highlights the story of the Lucero family, a multi-generational fishing family that has adapted to a changing industry by embracing fly fishing. The passion and dedication to both fishing and the fishery itself is portrayed by Israel, a master fly fishing guide whose family has fished the Sea of Cortez for generations.
In southern Baja, the Lucero’s lives have been interwoven with fishing for generations. A commercial and subsistence fishery has evolved into a region focused on pesca- tourism with saltwater fly fishing at the core. Bitter Water traces the braided lines of necessity, tradition, and passion at the heart of this story.
