MIFF By-the-Sea 11: INSULAIRE (ISLANDER)
[In Spanish and French with subtitles]
Sep 13 - 15, Sat 2:00 & Sun 9:00
Robinson Crusoe is a small island west of the Chilean coast where in 1704 a Scottish sailor lived the incredible experience that inspired Defoe’s novel that gave the island its name. In 1877, the island became the property of a young Swiss aristocrat. Its inhabitants today are strongly attached to their identity and reject everything coming from the outside: animals, plants, and people. Is it a bastion from the rest of the world? Or an example of xenophobia, fear, and anger?
