Archipelago (2021) Camden International Film Festival


A mix of animation and live action propel a meditation on fictional islands that exist in out heads, hearts and on paper. 

The best way to see this film will be a darkened theater where you can get lost in the magic of the story telling. Told through a series of conversations and speeches that tell us about imaginary islands, the film is one you need to give yourself over to. This is not conventional story telling since it uses animation on live action plates mixed with an ever changing image shape. We are not in Kansas and we are all the better for it.

To be honest I didn't click with the film at first but somewhere in the first 15 minutes it all came together and was willing to go anywhere with it.

Truly a one of kind viewing experience, this is a film you need to see instead of read about- and as such is very recommended
