The first movie adaption of the novel Die Gefaengnisinsel is here! The short film 'Die Gefängnisinsel - Doku einer Flucht' is a first cinematic implementation of a part of the novel. The lead role of Martin Eichendorf is played by Thomas Sailer himself.
As of 2020, Thomas Sailer has started the 'Initiative Visualisierung Gesamtwerk', an initiative to get his present oeuvre visualised properly.
One of the main goals of the initiative is the movie adaption of Thomas Sailer's novel 'Die Gefaengnisinsel'. An important step was taken in the second half of 2020 by producing and publishing the short film 'Die Gefaengnisinsel - Doku einer Flucht'
