Synopsis

 

FRIENDSHIP is a mysterious island at the Archipiélago de las Guitecas (Chile) which does not exist on the map. 

People from the south know the island by rumors that link FRIENDSHIP to 

miraculous healings and OVNI phenomena.

 

Shingo Yoshida is travelling most of the time. Toto Island is part of the same archipelago to which Shingo travelled with an improvised manual for basic communication, containing ready made phrases in Spanish regarding the purpose of his trip. The manual, 

an old radio and his video camera would be the only means to establish contacts and collect information 

on the Friendship enigma. ¿Sabe usted algo de la isla Friendship? (What Do You Know About Friendship Island?)  

is a video installation. 

 

 

FRIENDSHIP es una misteriosa isla del archipiélago de las Guaitecas (Chile) que no está en el mapa pero 

que la gente al sur de Chiloé conoce por rumores que la vinculan a sanaciones milagrosas 

y seres extraterrestres.
