Paradise lost

A DONKEY CALLED GERONIMO tells the story of a group of sailors living in rusty old boats reminiscing about the time when they lived on a small island in the Baltic Sea. The island was a miniature utopia, but at one point their dream of a society outside of society started devolving into a nightmare. Now the good times are lost forever. Arjun Talwar and Bigna Tomschin’s first feature length documentary is a strange and exciting tale about being enthralled by memories and ideas, and about the intersection between myth and normal everyday life.
