“The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came to Eden” Darwin meets Hitchcock in a True Crime tale of paradise found & lost.
It’s a fascinating documentary portrait of a 1930’s 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 Robinson and a gun-toting Viennese Baroness and her two lovers. Things would never be the same.
