ISLE OF DOGS
First show: April 27
In a dystopian Japan, twenty years in the future, all the canine pets of Megasaki City have been rounded-up after an outbreak of Dog-Flu and exiled to a massive garbage dump called Trash Island. A twelve-year old boy named Atari journeys to the crumbling kingdom of garbage in his Junior-Turbo Prop plane to search for his dog Spots. Along the way, he makes the acquaintance of a ragtag ensemble of mutts—and begins to uncover a massive political conspiracy that will shake the city to its core. Exquisitely designed, innovatively scored by composer Alexandre Desplat, and featuring a vast array of voice talents from Anderson’s ever-growing family of collaborators, stop-motion delight Isle of Dogs is a wildly inventive addition to the director’s collection of constructed cinematic worlds.
