Patrimonio takes place in Todos Santos, a community of 6,000 on the Pacific Coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico. The film tracks the town’s rising resistance to a multinational mega development that plans to build 5,000 houses in this vulnerable desert town. The development, called Tres Santos, is billed as ‘mindful’ and ‘green’ but threatens to transform the town of Todos Santos, quadrupling its population and causing irreversible damage.
