Visions of Utopia


Working with The Wellcome Trust, we have created a glittering, other-worldly short film based on a seventeenth century novella, New Atlantis. Written as a mystical, political fantasy by philosopher Francis Bacon, the story follows the remarkable survival of sailors who, whilst lost as sea, stumble upon an undiscovered island full of scientific marvels and advanced knowledge. The film is our second for the Trust's new online portal, Collectors, alongside Air Loom. You can view the film in situe here, or discover it's mythical delights below!
