About the project:
The Island of Salamanders is an animated film for the whole family, inspired by the famous novel The War with the Newts by Karel Čapek, one of the inventors of the science fiction genre. The film tells the story of 11-year-old girl Juliette, who is stranded on an island with her father, an unscrupulous businessman who is wanted by the police for fraud. The otherwise uninhabited island hides a great secret – a population of particularly intelligent and fast-learning giant salamanders. Juliette finally makes some real friends. But in the hands of her father, who is always out to make a profit, they could become the greatest environmental disaster the planet has ever seen.
