L'Île au trésor / Treasure Island

by Guillaume Brac Documentary Competition

Summer holidays. Screaming and shouting, bright-eyed children jump into the cool water in order to escape the heat. A teenager is flirting with the girl at the ticket office – maybe he'll get her number today? A couple of scoundrels jump off a bridge into the river just when the supervisory eyes have averted their gaze. In the manner of a small oasis, Île de Loisirs de Jablines-Annet, a stretch of lake and river basin, extends out into a banlieue not far from Paris. Many that visit the isle could not afford to pay for a vacation abroad so, each summer, the residents of the surrounding area commute to this leisure complex in search of a relaxing vacation. Director Guillaume Brac takes us to L'ÎLE AU TRÉSOR, a place full of stories and adventures which we get to explore through the eyes and stories of its visitors. The result is a lyrical, happy and melancholy film, in which childhood with all its rebellious and creative ideas as well as growing up with all its changes are nostalgically revisited.
