Across the water on the island, four individuals experience the year in which their lives will end. Illness progresses, relationships gently shift, and we are witness to rarely seen and intensely private moments. 
Island (and its sister work The Interval and the Instant) were the last of three artist commissions created by Fabrica that explore end of life themes. Produced with the full consent and involvement of the inpatients, outpatients and staff of Earl Mountbatten Hospice and St Mary’s Hospital which the artist depicts as a palliative island, it comprises of a symphony of movements, practices and rituals. Within this intricate orchestration of care we are witness to home visits, respite stays, treatments and the progression of illness. 
Like the ferries cyclically arriving and departing in this an enigmatic landscape, the film appears buoyant, afloat. Care and ultimately death are shown to be natural and everyday but also unspeakable and strange. 
Free popcorn. Tea, coffee and cake on sale.
