Spanish with English subtitles
Directed by Marcela Lizcano I Co-produced by Sarahi Echeverría.
There are 540 inhabitants in an island the size of half a city block. Isolated takes us to the most densely populated artificial island in the Colombian Caribbean. There is no police, no priests, no armed conflict. There are 97 homes in which reside 18 families. There is a school and a small square with a cross in the center that honors the island’s name: Santa Cruz del Islote.
The arrival of the modern world and possible displacement awakens the community to face new possibilities the future may bring. Aislados reflects on the role of humans and their environment, transforming this island into a metaphor of our own world.
