For many visitors to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, their experience is that of the beach and various resorts, according to Deerfield High School teacher Brett Schwartz.

Schwartz was enlisted by the Highland Park Sister Cities Foundation to show that there’s more to Highland Park’s sister city than the beach through film.

He worked with Mexican filmmaker Sebastian Alvarez, a Puerto Vallarta native, to create “Más Que la Playa,” a short documentary film which translates to “More than the Beach” in English.
