“Nostromo” is a feature documentary shot in the Northwestern Territories of Canada.

Synopsis: Arrived from France, Olivier lives like Robinson on an island lent to him by indigenous people, 200 km from Yellowknife, the only town in the Canadian Northwest Territories. Three visitors disturb this solitude, by re-enacting, in front of Fisnik Maxville’s camera, the “drama” of the first contact, in which a historically constituted mutual mistrust surfaces.
