Trash Island

I bought this book for my son for his birthday, as Wes Anderson is one of his favourite film directors and the film is a creative triumph. This book goes into the same detail as the prop makers in terms of explaining the huge effort that went into making the film. We got a good sense of that when we went to the exhibition of props that was on in London earlier in the year. An album of photos is available on Flickr here.

One of the key locations in the film is Trash Island.

This is a place where the trash is taken, including the dogs which are banished from the city.

Also worth watching this video on the making of the sushi scene in the film, which took a month to film!
