Isle of the Dead by the 19th Century painter Arnold Boecklin, is the subject of this McLaren film experiment. The spectral island wakes to mysterious life, flickers in an ethereal light and fades again into the dark - the whole effect heightened by an interpretive musical score by composer Louis Applebaum.
