Acclaimed filmmaker Patricio Guzman was 13 years old and living in Valparaiso, Chile when he discovered Daniel Defoe's novel Robinson Crusoe.

In 1999, he made ROBINSON CRUSOE ISLAND on the real Robinson Island off the coast of Chile, which he had long believed fictitious. A meditation on the legend and odyssey of Crusoe as contrasted with the actual island; the film is also a travelogue of Guzman's adventures there.

Guzman earlier films, CHILE, OBSTINATE MEMORY and the celebrated THE BATTLE OF CHILE (arguably the most important political documentary ever made), are also distributed by First Run / Icarus Films. ROBINSON CRUSOE ISLAND is the personal contemplation of a childhood story, and an exploration the story's actual setting off the coast of Chile.

Please note: Not all Spanish dialogue in ROBINSON CRUSOE ISLAND is subtitled in English.
