The Gilligan Manifesto


Watch The Gilligan Manifesto (2018)

At the height of the Cold War, Gilligan's Island depicted seven Americans living in an analogue of a post-apocalyptic world where the survivors have to rebuild civilization. Remarkably, the society they create is pure communist. Interviews with the show's creator and some of the surviving actors, as well from professors from Harvard, reveal that Gilligan's Island was deliberately designed to be dismissed as low brow comedy in order to celebrate Marxism and lampoon Western democratic constructs.

The Gilligan Manifesto is one of my favorite movie from year 2018. Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you've returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. Not this one. It’s not surprising that Cevin Soling can produce a good film from nothing. You just have to watch The Gilligan Manifesto. The richness of dialogue, which is the power of this image, arouses the respect of the recipient, especially when compared to today's productions, most of them are very poor. Cevin Soling proved that the whole film can hold the viewer's attention. The Gilligan Manifesto is one of the best possible choice for a saturday evening with cinema.... Show more
