Avant-première in the presence of the filmmaker
In 1877, a Swiss aristocrat, Alfred von Rodt, became the governor of a remote Chilean island. Exiled from his country and family, von Rodt strived until his death to build a utopian 'little kingdom', but failed and lost his entire fortune. Insulaire tells the story of this outcast through the lives of his descendants, who today seek political autonomy and a preservation of their indigenous identity.
