Thanks too Netflix I got to see this jewel of a little known film. It’s about three groups of people who decided to forsake normal civilized life and got to live on the island of Floreana in the Galapagos Islands. Some were highly-trained professionals. The story did not have a happy ending. One couple,most likely, was murdered. The probable killers died later in a boating mishap between islands. A German medical doctor who settled there died of either accidental or intentional poisoning. Ironically some other people survived and built a life there.
For all of those in NASA and in private companies with a goal of colonizing Mars, this film is a “must see.” It shows some of the pit falls of sending humans far away to a hostile environment. I am a firm advocate of sending humans to live on Mars. This film made me think. We must plan such endeavors with the greatest care.
