The Gilligan Manifesto
The Gilligan Manifesto • Documentary
At the height of the Cold War, Gilligan’s Island depicted seven Americans living in an analog of a post-apocalyptic world where the survivors have to rebuild civilization. Remarkably, the society they create is pure communist. Interviews with the show’s creator and surviving actors reveal that Gilligan’s Island was conceived to celebrate Marxist ideals and lampoon democracy.
