The Art Department Eindhoven 2024

Screening with intro by Animation Director, Anna Mantzaris

Released in 2018, director Wes Anderson’s second animated feature, Isle of Dogs, transports audiences into the bleakly beautiful fictional city of Megasaki. The film lingers in your mind thanks to the intricate world-building, soulful characters and compelling story.

We’re thrilled to be joined by Swedish animation director Anna Mantzaris, who worked as an animator on Isle of Dogs, before the screening. Anna will introduce the stop-motion film, providing insights into its production. We can’t wait to hear what she has to share with us.

After a royal decree exiles all canine animals to Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off to find his beloved bodyguard dog, Spots. Isle of Dogs tells the story of Atari and his newly befriended pack of mongrels’ epic journey that will eventually decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. An all-star line-up of voice actors includes Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Bryan Cranston, Tilda Swinton, Scarlett Johansson, Jeff Goldblum and more.
