This Julien Temple documentary chronicles around 3000 years of Ibizan history.
Ironically titled owing to it’s pounding rave soundtrack selected by Fatboy Slim, the story is told entirely without dialogue. True to the traditional silent movie technique, the graphics team led by Jonny Halifax played an integral role in weaving the film's narrative since the whole story is told by animated intertitles which change thematically throughout the film.
Through a playfully critical lens, the film charts multiple swathes of visitations to the island — from Phoenicians to ravers via hippies and beatniks.
A BBC Films / Silver Reel production in association with Cornerstone Films.
