THE ISLAND now in production
In production April 2020
THE ISLAND produced and directed by EAVE graduate Anca Damian is in production. The animated musical comedy and “an upside-down Robinson Crusoe story” shares characters with Daniel Defoe’s novel Robinson Crusoe, but in the animation, Robinson is a doctor who isolates himself voluntarily on an island, his seclusion soon to be interrupted by migrants, guards and NGO representatives. In Damian’s fourth animated feature, Friday is, for example, the sole survivor on a boat which had left Africa for Italy. The film is a co-production between Damian’s Aparte Film, Take Five (Belgium) and Komadoli (France). The production received support from the Romanian National Film Center. It also received backing from Eurimages and Creative Europe - MEDIA. Damian expects the movie to be delivered before the end of the year.
