Ralph Melcher's rating of the film Agave: Spirit of a Nation

A beautifully filmed documentary that transcends its ‘infomercial’ genre in a way that’s both spiritual and sensual. Every shot is carefully composed within a rhythmic structure that irresistibly pulls one into the lives of the people it captures. The musical score is subtly layered upon the sounds of streets and the natural world in a way that evokes a kind of magic that invests the ‘real’ world. Beautifully done.
