La Tortue Rouge

80 mins

JAP/FRA | 2016 | dir. Michaël Dudok de Wit | animationThrough the story of a shipwrecked sailor on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds, The Red Turtle evokes the main stages of the life of a human being, paradoxically struck by isolation and freedom. Presented in Cannes Un Certain Regard selection and nominated at the Oscars, it is the first international collaboration for famed Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli with UK-based Dutch animator Michaël Dudok de Wit. The magical realism is heightened by the stunning artwork and the haunting soundtrack by Laurent Perez del Mar which captures both the intimacy and grandiose nature of the narrative. 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Michaël Dudok de Wit (TBC)

Sun 17 Oct 1.30pm

This screening is part of One World Unspoken, a short season curated by Yvonne Wootton, MA Student in Film Studies, Programming and Curating, in partnership with the National Film and Television School, The Genesis and Ciné Lumière.

 In partnership with the NFTS

As part of la Fête du Cinéma d’Animation

The CinéFamilies at the Ciné Lumière is a great way to spend an enjoyable moment with the whole family in a safe and beautiful cinema like no other.

It is 2 min walking distance from the main national museums and 5 min to Hyde Park which makes it perfect for a day out without travelling too much.

Ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (31 Oct – 12 Nov), let’s explore our relationship to the environment with this programme of films which use little or no dialogue, providing an immersive cinematic experience enhanced by their distinctive soundtracks.
