Een leeg eiland

A sound portrait of an empty island. ‘Een Leeg Eiland’, is mainly in Dutch, here english transcription .

In our overpopulated world, emptiness and space have all but disappeared, but on the border of Europe lies a difficult-to-reach island in the Atlantic Ocean: Foula. For centuries, this rugged and inhospitable place was home to countless birds and around 150 people. In the ears of program maker Threes Anna, this island sounds like an ideal, perhaps paradise-like place. Is it that? With marine biologist Kees Camphuysen. Threes leave for a summer to the island, to discover how the people live there.
