ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli explores a new creative direction with this realistically drawn feature created in partnership with Dutch animator Michaël Dudok de Wit, who received a Cannes Film Festival Special Jury Prize for his work. Academy Award nominee THE RED TURTLE is tale of a shipwrecked man who establishes a family and a new life on an island inhabited only by majestic animal life is told without dialogue. Time Out raves, "Dudok de Wit modulates our emotions in sophisticated ways, first accessing the awe of The Black Stallion, then straight-up guilt and, finally, an evolution that can't be explained by anything other than hope."
