Islander immerses us in the modern-day reality of Robinson Crusoe island. Its inhabitants are not Chilean, nor Swiss, but they are strongly attached to their identity and reject everything coming from the “outside” – animals, plants and people. Film reveals a utopia that relies on the “purity” of its inhabitants and environment, and offer a potent metaphor for contemporary nationalism and politics of fear.
