Japan / 2017 / 107 minutes / HD Digital

Off the coast of our imagination lies the island of manga (Japanese cartoon) artists struggling to survive and create by deadlines or die there amidst the sculptural swirls and dangers of a threatening natural world. But is Manga-jima a place of exile or creation? Lord of the Flies or Island of Lost Souls ? An intense allegory of the creative process in this genre or a savage indictment of masculinity and fantasy? Moriya’s film raises questions for fans and newcomers alike.
