French documentarian Guillaume Brac, takes us into the busy summer season at Paris's most iconic water park. 'Treasure Island' explores the leisure paradise in its most authentic form, Brac showcases a land of adventure, refuge and escape. From the costly beach to the hidden tranquilities that lay within, the film portrays the park as an explorative region for children, a keeper of peace and above all, an escape from the real world.
'Treasure Island' invites its audience to immerse themselves in the serene, Brac's film although simple, encapsulates the atmosphere of the location in a remarkably sensory way. There is a pure delicacy to Brac's direction that is to be admired, his sentimentality and clear nostalgia, enables the film to radiate an array of warm emotions throughout. In what can best be described as a docu-hybrid, 'Treasure Island' is a unique work that clearly distinguishes itself from other films of its kind and promises an optimistic future for director Brac.
