Acclaimed and emerging artists use wit and satire to examine modern society

*French will follow*

January 23, 2017 – Montreal – National Film Board of Canada (NFB) 
Now online, Naked Island is a bold new National Film Board of Canada (NFB) series of 14 super-short and incisive films, framed as Public Service Alerts, from some of Canada’s most talented animators and artists, exploring their visions of modern-day society. 
Available for free streaming at as well as the NFB’s YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Instagram channels, Naked Island blends the art of animation with the format of advertising to address an array of topics, from global warming to politics to our obsession with technology.
Ranging from Oscar and Genie winners and nominees to emerging talent in animation and fine arts, Naked Island filmmakers make bold statements in a variety of styles to create ultimate anti-advertisements, using wit and satire to encourage us to stop and think.
Naked Island is produced by Jelena Popović and Maral Mohammadian of the NFB English Animation Studio, with Michael Fukushima as executive producer.

"RUBBED THE WRONG WAY" Created & Written by Struan Sutherland & Bill Corkum

Official Sneak Peek

The series follows Genie’s absurd journey through the courts, from his wrongful arrest by an overzealous cop to his trial and eventual incarceration.

Genie finds himself increasingly annoyed by his supporting cast of incompetents that occupy various positions in the twisted oddity that is the criminal justice system. It’s a bizarre, yet all-too-realistic depiction of the court process where a mystical being turns out to be the only voice of reason.

Created & Written by Struan Sutherland & Bill Corkum
Direction/Animation: Struan Sutherland
