On Thursday 15th February, Isle of Dogs Premiered at Berlinale. Wes Anderson’s latest animation opened the 68th Berlin International Film Festival, the first animation to be given this honour.
Isle of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.
The film has received rave reviews, and we could not be more proud having housed the talented team that has been working on the stop-motion animation at 3 Mills Studios for over 2 years! The film will be released in cinemas in the UK on Friday 30th March 2018. Just in case you need any more convincing to go watch it when it’s released you can watch a clip from the film here.
