Naked Island

Running time: 75'

Production: HR 2014

Some sixty years ago, a man went missing for four years. He returned a changed man carrying along a painful secret. He later built his family’s life around this unspoken of secret. Talking about the past was forbidden in the family. It was his granddaughter, also the director of this film, who first started asking questions, wanting to find out what lay hidden beneath her grandfather’s scar covered body ever since childhood. However, he died without revealing the entire story to anyone.

“Naked Island” is an investigation built upon the ruins of the past, a mosaic made of clues – family photos and intimate testimonies of a tight-knit group of people who were brought together by the same place, an island of broken souls, and consequences that this place left on three generations.
