The Pleasure Island

Ironic short film that criticizes the situation
of culture in Spain.

A dangerous idea has been imposed: Culture’s only purpose is to entertain. It’s a luxury. Why does this place – from the outside – look like a sunny amusement park ? Maybe we have sold ourselves poorly and cheaply. Can we change it, or is it useless? It’s urgent to point the gun at us. If we consider culture as pure entertainment, we’ll be like Pinocchio on the island of pleasure: playing, sleeping and laughing, while we become donkeys that only serve to load stones.
