The Red Turtle | Sydney Film Festival 2016



Announced this morning the Sydney Film Festival have added nine films that have come direct from Cannes.  The Red Turtle, a dialogue free animation from Studio Ghibli with London-based artist Michael Dudok de Wit is amongst the latest additions to the festival program.

A shipwrecked sailor washes ashore and explores his new home. He finds a sandy beach fringed by palm trees, a swaying bamboo forest, limpid freshwater pools and a rocky incline. It’s an earthly paradise that our lanky castaway is desperate to leave, but his escape plans are mysteriously thwarted. It’s a simple story, akin to fairy tales or myths, illustrated in exquisite line and colour, with spectacular dream sequences.

Tickets go on sale from 10am this morning.
Screening:
Friday 17 June 6.30pm
Saturday 18 June 5.30pm
