Storyline

Darwin is a documentary feature about an isolated community at the end of a weathered road in Death Valley, California. Propelled from society by tragic turns, the people of Darwin (population 35) must now find ways to coexist in a place without a government, a church, jobs, or children. The film tells the story of a uniquely American place and yet a place that is unique even within America. Written by Taylor Segrest

A captivating look into a soon to be ghost town
28 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

I have been hearing about this film for a long time and saw that it was shown at quite a few film festivals around the world. I finally got a chance to see it, and it beat all my expectations. The viewer gets immersed in the lives of people who have withdrawn to the edge of society. Every town resident featured in this documentary has a compelling life story to tell and recounts it in an utterly open way. The mood shifts back and forth between light hearted and melancholic. This made it truly remarkable since I found myself laughing one minute to being sad the next. The beautiful landscape and setting only add to its impact. The film definitely deserves the "buzz" it gets and I would highly recommend it.
