The Island - An upside-down Robinson Crusoe between migrants & pirates

One of the feature films competing in the new edition of Annecy Festival is the European The Island of which we see the trailer below.
This is a musical fable about the Robinson Crusoe legend. Here, Robinson is a doctor and unlike the real Crusoe he actively wants to be alone. But his island, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, is being invaded by migrants, NGOs and guards. He saves Friday, the only survivor from a boat of refugees travelling from Africa to Italy. On this island, Robinson encounters the most extraordinary people, and he imaginatively confronts the absurdity of day-to-day life. It's a little like The Little Prince meets Monty Python.

The Island is directed by Anca Damian and produced in Romania, France and Belgium between the studios Aparte Film, Anca Damian, Komadoli Studio, Special Touch Studios, Amopix, Take Five and Minds Meet. Based on "Insula" by Gellu Naum, the feature film is made using 2D and 3D animations and aimed at an audience of young adults and adults.

Part of the Official Selection of the 2022 edition of the Annecy, here is the trailer:
