Their first adventure, Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang, took SIFF 2014 by storm, winning the Films4Families Jury Prize with its mix of fantasy excitement and mischievous youth antics. This year, Zip & Zap return with a new adventure that successfully ups the ante of the first film. Initially bored by the images of Sherlock Holmes, Allan Quartermain, and Jekyll and Hyde, Zip & Zap will have to use the conglomerate skills of those classic characters to unearth the secrets which threaten the lives of everyone on Captain's Island. Originally visiting the island to accompany their father, they are surprised to come upon a house run by Miss Pam (Elena Anaya in an inspired role). Aside from just a couple of adults, the only others on the island are children-and Miss Pam believes in no rules. What seems perfect for the titular tricksters soon becomes a nightmare as their parents go missing. Ultimately deciding that their parents need to be found, the children of the island band together to unravel the mystery behind Miss Pam and her island of youth. Director Oskar Santos has crafted another thrilling film that exists in both a vintage and modern sensibility, making it appealing for young audiences and a delight for older children-at-heart.
