Isle of Dogs hits theatres on 6th July, and it’s a must-see. Directed by Wes Anderson, the heart-warming film was made using stop-motion animation – a technique that brings objects to life on screen – instead of live animals. The movie is set 20 years in the future, when all companion canines have been exiled to a garbage-filled isle called Trash Island. Twelve-year-old Atari Kobayashi ventures there in search of his dog, Spots.
Anyone who loves and appreciates animals – companion or otherwise – will fall in love with this film, too.
And don’t even get us started on the cast. Tilda Swinton voices a character named Oracle, but Isle of Dogs isn’t the first animal-centric film that she’s been involved in. Last year, she starred in Okja, an action-adventure story that shows the horrors of animal agriculture through the eyes of a young girl and her “super pig”. In an interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Swinton discussed the film:
As anybody knows who lives with animals, they teach you more about what it is to be a good human than most people: patience, goodhearted-ness, enthusiasm, presence, forgiveness, focus, restfulness, honesty.
In a recent PETA US campaign, Liev Schreiber – who supplies the voice for Spots – urged everyone to save lives by adopting companion animals. “The good folks at PETA [US] and I encourage you to find your own perfect match and save a life (or two!) by adopting,” he said.
But the plot and cast aren’t the only reasons we love the film: instead of forcing real dogs to perform on cue, Anderson and his team used stop-motion animation to bring each character to life.
