Robinson Crusoe Island (La isla de Robinson Crusoe)
When Patricio Guzmán discovered that Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, a book he loved as a 13-year-old boy, was based on actual events set on a real island 700 kilometres from the Chilean coast, he was moved to rediscover the location.

This film acts as a kind of ironic travel journal as he sets out on his journey, all the while being in constant play with the fields of history, literature and imagination.
