Synopsis
Robinson is alone on his island by choice. That is, until Friday, survivor of a refugee crisis that soon reaches the island’s shores, arrives and sparks an incredible journey filled with mermaids, monsters, migrants, marooners and mysterious NGOs. Anca Damian’s follow-up to Marona’s Fantastic Tale (45th) is a psychedelic reinvention of Daniel Defoe’s literary classic. Propelled by catchy songs and a free-wheeling, psychedelic style that fuses science-fiction and fantasy, The Island transforms its titular destination into a realm of possibilities, reflecting the world in all its ugliness, as well as its paradise potential.
