Synopsis

It’s not just horses, birds and insects that inhabit the remote Sable Island off the Canadian coast. For decades its beautiful landscapes have also served as the backdrop for the work of naturalist Zoe Lucas, as well as a docking point for plastic waste floating from overseas. In a stunning immersive experience shot on 16mm, the documentary film delicately approaches Lucas and life on the island. Combining formal experimentation with an ecological perspective, Canadian filmmaker Mills addresses one of the most pressing issues of our time. (C. M.)
