L’ILES DES ACHROMATES, UNE ILE EN NOIR ET BLANC


Micronésie – 2008 – 19 mn
Réalisateur : Juliette Lambot
Production : France 3 Thalassa
Version française

In the middle of the Pacific there is a tale that there are men who find their way at night like in the day. Colour blind, with vision reduced to black and white, they prefer living beneath the moon to living beneath the light of sun…They are called ‘achromtes.’ Achromatopsia is a genetic illness. It affects one in ten people on the island of Pingelap in Micronesia, whilst in the rest of the world it is one in thirty thousand…A mystery explained by a legend, one about a typhoon which in the 18th century, devastated everything in its path.
