THE PLEASURE ISLAND

Client 
FESTIVAL TEMPORADA ALTA

Briefing

A dangerous idea is claimed: Culture's only purpose is entertainment. It's a luxury. Why is this place perceived as a sunny amusement park? Maybe we've sold ourselves really poorly and cheaply. Can we change it? Or is it useless?

Proposal

It's urgent to point the gun at us.If we consider culture as pure entertainment, then we'll be Pinocchio in Pleasure Island: playing, sleeping, laughing, while turning into donkeys that only serve to carry stones.

Contribution

Ironical short film that criticises the state of culture in Spain. This was the opening video of the country's most important festival for perf. arts.

Production

The piece premiered in cinemas and theatres. With all its versions and platforms, it became viral on social media: reaching 1,5 million people, 500 thousand views in total, and more than 2000 likes. But most of important of all, it opened a debate.
