Naked is a story about the family drama of political prisoner on the Naked Island. Some sixty years ago, a man went missing for four years. He returned back as a changed man, carrying along a painful secret. He later built his family’s life around this unspoken secret. Talking about the past was forbidden in the family. It was his granddaughter, also the director of this film, who first started asking questions, wanting to find out what lay hidden beneath her grandfather’s scar-covered body ever since childhood. However, he died without revealing the entire story to anyone. Naked Islandis an investigation built upon the ruins of the past, a mosaic made of clues – family photos and intimate testimonies of a tight-knit group of people who were brought together by the same place, a political prison in ex-Yugoslavia that was also known asanisland of broken souls, and the consequences that this place left on three generations. At the same time, it is a fascinating portrayal of a moment in which a past can finally become history and a brave documentary defying silence and fear.
