Galapagos Affair, The: Satan Came to Eden

The Galapagos Affair is a documentary portrait of a 1930s murder mystery as strange and alluring as the famous archipelago itself.

Fleeing conventional society, a Berlin doctor and his mistress start a new life on uninhabited Floreana Island.  But after the international press sensationalizes the exploits of the Galapagos’ “Adam and Eve,” others flock there — including a self-styled Swiss Family Robinsonouts; testimonies of modern day islanders; stunning HD footage of native flora and fauna; and powerful voice performances by Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger, Connie Nielsen, Sebastian Koch, Thomas Kretschmann, Gustaf Skarsgård and Josh Radnor.

Macabre yet inspiring, The Galapagos Affair is a gripping parable of adventure and utopian dreams gone awry.
