Sukwan's Island by Perihan Incegöz & Jonathan Tremblay, screened during last year's RIDM, is now available online on Tënk.
Somewhere in the jungle of northern Thailand, a child sits surrounded by debris, telling us a fairy tale of her own invention. Smiling and playful, Sukwan brings us to the island of Snowyaland, a children’s earthly paradise whose location and inhabitants are known only to her. Gambling on imagination, her parents help her build this imaginary world from scratch, giving life to their daughter’s creativity through brick and mortar. An ode to the power of imagination, L’île de Sukwan brings up the buried desire to keep believing in the magic of childhood and the disappointing reality of the adult world.
