Film, and then some

The Red Turtle

Friday 7th April, 2017

The Electric Cinema Screen 2 | 20:30 - 22:45

A wordless and beautifully crafted fable about a man cast adrift on a remote island.

The starting point for The Red Turtle was an out-of-the-blue email to animator Michael Dudok de Wit, from the people at Studio Ghibli. Big fans of his short films including the Oscar-winning Father and Daughter (2001), they said that if he would like to make a feature they’d be very interested in producing it. Ten years later we get to enjoy the fruits of this happy gathering, a wordless and beautifully crafted fable about a man cast adrift on a remote island. We're delighted to confirm that Michael Dudok de Wit will be present to take part in a Q&A after the film. The event running time has been extended to reflect this.

Dir: Michael Dudok de Wit Japan/France/Belgium 2017, 80 mins
