Islands is a program Joe Frank produced as part of the series Work In Progress. It was originally broadcast in 1988.


Joe is in a strange part of town at dusk with a child and tries to call his mother from a phone booth. Reading a motivational prayer in an agitated voice. Second person criticism of someone named Ceel. A distorted voice describes an island scene. A mysterious woman visits Joe's office late at night and asks him to keep a box. Paranoid business questions set to rhythmic background. Canvas fish that resemble works of art.
