Los Angeles, CA (March 2, 2021)
In a time where travel is limited and families are seeking new entertainment options, the upcoming Bahamas-based film, Dolphin Island, hits in the nick of time…and is available on all major VOD/streaming providers. The film is directed by Mike Disa (of Space Dogs & Hoodwinked Too!) and produced by Shaked Berenson (of Space Dogs & A Tiger’s Tale), and written by Disa, Berenson and Rolfe Kanefsky (of Puppy Swap: Love Unleashed), Dolphin Island is a family-focused movie sharing the story of a girl, her dolphin, and the power of family.
Disa shares, “We set out to make a heartwarming movie that shares about the power of family and community. We couldn’t have expected the timing that, shortly after filming, our world would be shut down to traveling.”
Berenson adds, “We hope the film helps families escape to a beautiful island paradise, that it can inspire girls to seek out careers in science, and it can help us consider the power of family-in whatever form we may find it.”
Dolphin Island invites us to experience an island paradise, where fourteen-year-old Annabel lives with her fisherman grandfather. She is surrounded by an extended family of loving but quirky neighbors and her best friend—a dolphin named Mitzy. Everything changes when her maternal grandparents arrive with a shifty lawyer to bring her back to New York. It’s up to Annabel and her friends to figure out how to save the day and prove that love conquers all!
