 — Robert Redford, the actor and director, has been in Baja California this month filming a new movie at the Baja Film Studios in Rosarito Beach.

Written and directed by J.C. Chandor, “All is Lost” tells the story of a man fighting for survival while adrift at sea.

The 75-year-old actor took a break from filming Saturday for a guided visit through Tijuana’s Cultural Center (Cecut) in the city’s Río Zone, together with his wife, the German artist Sibylle Szaggars.

The couple stopped by an exhibit of of Baja California artist Angel Valráin the center’s El Cubo gallery, and visited the Cineteca movie theatre, according to a news release. Redford told his hosts that he used to visit Tijuana as a teenager to attend bullfights.

For dinner, the actor and his wife dropped in at Mision 19, the restaurant owned by chef Javier Plascencia that has been the focus of much U.S. media attention in recent months.
