Knit's Island Ekiem Barbier, Guilhem Causse, Quentin L'helgoualc'h

On an isolated island , laws are a thing of the past. Among the ruins of the world they once knew, people try to survive however they can—whether through urban farming or avoiding zombie attacks. Here and there, groups form and communities are born, some united by their most twisted desires, others by a new cult. It’s this completely virtual world that Knit’s Island’s three directors want to document, by spending hundreds of hours exploring the boundaries of this parallel space. Capturing both the stunning beauty of the natural landscapes and the mundanity of the survivalists’ daily lives, they set out in search of those who choose to inhabit this strange universe, where the memories they create are as tangible as those of our reality.
