THE ISLANDERS

LES INSULAIRES

ECTE XP

by Stéphane Goël 36

In 1877 a Swiss aristocrat, Alfred von Rodt, became the king of a remote Chilean island. He ruled for 30 years over a handful of fishermen and thousands of goats. Nowadays his descendants, proud of their Swiss origins, dream of becoming politically independent and think about limiting the emigration. From the utopia of small kingdom to the dream of self-government, this island is a laboratory and a metaphor.
