DREAMING AN ISLAND


a documentary film by Andrea Pellerani
Switzerland 2020; 76′; o.v. Japanese, sbt. English/Italian

Synopsis:

What would happen if everything stopped? If the wheels of the economy were to come off permanently? The Japanese island of Ikeshima is a place that seems to be ahead of its time, showing us a possible future. The few remaining inhabitants live in a surreal setting, clinging firmly to a normality that seems however to escape them. A dreamlike journey, which forces us to think about our relationship with the planet but also about social isolation and loneliness.
