Family Friendly // The Red Turtle

Dir. Michaël Dudok de Wit | France/Belgium/Japan 2015 | 81 min | PG

The next feature in our Family Friendly season comes from renowned Japanese animation giant Studio Ghibli. Almost a decade in the making, The Red Turtle is a perfect collaboration with Oscar-winning Dutch animator Michaël Dudok De Wit. This dialogue-free fable about a castaway on a desert island is a touching ode to the cycle of life and the resilience of family. 
 
Presented with an elegant simplicity, the sublime visuals pack a real emotional punch. Described by critics as a ‘quiet little masterpiece’ and a ‘wordless wonder’, The Red Turtle won the Special Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at this year’s Cannes. Michaël Dudok De Wit previously made the Oscar-winning animated short Father And Daughter in 2000.
 
Tickets: £7.75 adult / £6 concession (inc. Poly Fund)
