L'île noire

53' - 1994 - Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Rob Rombout Composer: Jean-Louis Daulne With: Glenn A. Musick, Brian Spencer, Terry Johnson
In the North Sea today, next to sixty thousand people are living off-shore. On board the F.G. McClintock rig, eighty men and one woman work around the clock in search of Black Gold. In such enclosed space facing the wild sea, little room is left to express your state of mind. After "North Express" which tells the story of the famous railway link between Paris and Moscow and "Transatlantic, Queen Elizabeth 2," a portrait of the last liner sailing from Europa to America, Rob Rombout's new documentary, "The Black Island," is a new approach of a micro society behind closed doors.
