The Island

About the Film

Discover a musical fable on the Robinson Crusoe myth: The Little Prince meets Monty Python. Robinson is a doctor and his solitude is voluntary in an island invaded by migrants, NGOs and guards. He saves Friday, a castaway, the only survivor of his illegal refugee boat. During his journey on the island, Robinson encounters extraordinary beings and events. He will confront current affairs through visual poetry and symbolism in a world where everybody looks for their own paradise.
In this crazy musical animation that was screened at the 2022 Rotterdam Film Festival, Romanian animation master Anca Damian turns an all too familiar story upside down by utilizing creativity, surrealism and the absurd.
