The Little Island

Richard Williams (1958)

Depicts the dreams, ideas, and struggles of three men (representing “truth,” “beauty,” and “good”) who settle on a tiny island.

The first film directed by Richard Williams, the master animator behind Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) and The Thief and the Cobbler (1993).

In his scathing take on ideology, three little men each have an idea – but only one – that come to clash on a desert island.

1958 – BAFTA Award Winner for Best Animated Film

Self-financed, Richard’s first film was a half-hour philosophical argument without words.
