Some breathtaking shots in this short dance film by Tenerife-born, Valencia-based photographer and filmmaker Derek Pedrós. Set to Kai Schumacher’s track “A New Error” and featuring dancer Chey Jurado, “Islander” attempts to convey the particular sensibility and eternal sense of belonging that marks those who have grown up surrounded by water. According to Pedrós, it doesn’t matter where in the world one ends up, being an Islander is all about “feeling complete in a place where others feel isolated. Free, where others feel limited.”
