Filmmakers Dayna Goldfine and Dan Geller tell the remarkable true story of two Germans who moved to an uninhabited Galapagos island in the 1930s in the hope of creating some kind of Eden. Berlin physician Freidrich Ritter and his lover Dore Strauch (pictured) envisioned a paradise of solitude and subsistence living. Instead word spread, they were called "The Adam and Eve of the Galapagos", more people arrived and life on the island of Floreana became survival of the fittest. Danya Goldfine and Dan Geller have unearthed home movies taken on the island, using them as a basis for their film The Galapagos Affair: Satan Came To Eden, which is screening at The New Zealand International Film Festival.
