The Red Turtle (2016, Fr/Bel/Japan, Dir. Michael Dudok De Wit, 80 Mins, PG)

Director: Michael Dudok de Wit ● Starring: Emmanuel Garijo, Tom Hudson and Baptiste Goy.

A man is shipwrecked on a tropical island, with only birds and sea creatures for company. Tired and hungry, he strives to survive and sail away on a home-made raft – until an encounter with a red turtle changes the course of his life…

This remarkable and mature animation, made in collaboration with the legendary Studio Ghibli, casts an enchanting spell as it charts the relationship between man and environment.

While not a ‘silent’ movie, the film is essentially dialogue free – “A wordless wonder” (Daily Telegraph).

With one showing at 7.30pm ONLY.
