Trailer for Island of Dreams, which screened at the 2009 Vancouver International Film Festival.
A case-hardened cop is pitted against a young eco-terrorist. The title "island" is an artificial construct in Tokyo Bay, a mountain of garbage, a by-product of Japans economic boom years. The films protagonist Alan works there, almost buried under societys detritus; his growing obsession with the search for what has been lost turns him into a "dangerous" activist. He targets the industrialist Wada, whose chemical factory secretly discharges toxic waste into the environment. But the cop Terayama, who thought hed seen it all, starts researching eco-activism and soon suspects the haunted, taciturn young man hes encountered in the neighborhood.
