Isle Of Dogs tells the story of Atari Kobayashi, 12-year-old ward to corrupt Mayor Kobayashi. When, by Executive Decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots. There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture. In celebration of the release of Wes Anderson’s Isle Of Dogs, fans in London were treated to an exclusive exhibition with original sets and puppets from the film at 180 The Strand. The exhibition, saw over 50,000 visitors who were able to see up close to the 17 visually stunning sets.
The exhibition is now closed but those who missed it can now catch a glimpse of the exhibition in the sizzle below as well as behind-the-scenes featurettes on the making of this spectacular stop motion world.
