Island of Souls
Island of Souls has preserved in its memory what people have forgotten, the history of those who were not seen worthy of it. Through the filmmaker we meet the souls who have lived on the island; island's first priest and doctor from 17th century, a woman who was there as a patient two hundred years later and in the present the scientists who study the nature and the state of the Baltic sea. Island of Souls will be a feature length creative documentary, a radioplay and a gallery installation.
