Experimentation. Transcendence. Rapture.
| 86 minutes | 2018
An adrift and alienated couple’s struggles blur into enchanting and mysterious Irish landscapes. Deliberately melodramatic, yet bold and experimental in visual style, Phantom Islands walks the very fine line between documentary and fiction, challenging the limits of each. To the backdrop of a lush sound design, Rouzbeh Rashidi's camera looms over eerie and distorted landscapes, escalating the tension between the two characters to the point where they vanish into the hazy islands.
