Islandpunk

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Islandpunk is a subgenre of the retrofuturistic subdivisions of cyberpunk that includes narratives set on islands. Such narratives utilise island-based technologies and the island locations to make their thematic statements. Precursors include William Golding's Lord of the Flies, Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, and the final scenes of Stanley Kubrick's unfinished biopic Napoleon, in which the titular Napoleon is exiled on the island of St. Helena. Notable contemporary examples include Castaway, Gilligan's Island, certain seasons of Survivor, and Moana. Although, since much of the film is set on a boat, some critics argue that Moana should instead be considered boatpunk.
