The Anholt Project, film from James Stier

The Anholt Project


Have you ever ventured into the unknown? Taken a leap of faith? The Anholt Project Documentary is the story of 3 people doing just that. Leaving their normal lives behind, Marc from Spain, a Danish boy, Anders and an Austrian girl, Bianca, participate in a potentially life changing adventure without knowing exactly what they were getting themselves into. Accompanied by 21 others from 6 countries they find themselves whisked away to Anholt. A remote island in the Kattegat Sea, once a forest island but now a desert, 6km across with only 160 inhabitants. With only 3 rules and no official program their unknown objective is to build their own micro society. This is not Lord of The Flies, but it could be.
