“Provisional Synopsis”: Phantom Islands is an experimental film that exists at the boundary of documentary and fiction. It will explore numerous islands and wild landscapes around Ireland through the attitudes of a foreign couple exploring them. The woman is a photographer who takes a supernatural interest in what she discovers, whereas the man is a daydreamer content to luxuriate in the natural beauty he encounters and indulge in clichés and preconceptions. Through observing each other on this trip, the couple also becomes increasingly aware of the differences and tensions between them. Ultimately, Phantom Islands will question the very possibility of documentary objectivity.
