Isle of the Dead (La Isla de los Muertos)
(Vuk Jevremovic, 2013, 8 min)
What if a silent movie fan, Franz Kafka, offered F.W Murnau to make a film about his short story In the Penal Colony? One soldier is about to be executed because of his disobedience. The execution will be theoretically carried out by an ancient machine which engraves one sentence (the committed crime) on a man’s skin. But the government has decided that this type of punishment is inhuman, and it should be immediately forbidden.Also inspired by some original drawings of Kafka.
