Santa Cruz del Islote

Santa Cruz del Islote is a three-acre island fifty miles off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia. A community of about 600 people, it is one of the most densely populated islands in the world. This region's lucrative fishing, which encouraged such overdevelopment, has dwindled in recent years, and the island's subsistence has become increasingly uncertain. Following a fisherman and a ten-year-old boy, this short documentary captures the complexity of cherishing a peaceful way of life that can no longer continue with ease.
