THE ISLAND tries to cross the mechanism of homophobia with a big smile. The homosexual filmmaker has received ”fan mail“: Why don´t all the homosexual people leave society and move to an island to infect each other with AIDS. Lost in thought the director wanders through the Canadian snow desert and creates a possible setting for such an island. An animated, essayistic narrative film.
At ”Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Film Festival“ in Toronto Trevor Anderson was characterised as an emerging Canadian filmmaker working with passion, humour, a strong sense of social justice and a personal point of view.back to overview
