From the acclaimed Studio Ghibli, perhaps one of the world’s most respected animation houses, comes THE RED TURTLE, a quiet and mesmerizing masterpiece about one man’s journey to overcome loneliness on a deserted tropical island. Stranded among turtles, crabs, and birds, the simple characters are surrounded by a rich ecosystem, where the textures and symbolism offer a deeper understanding of the milestones in the life of a human being. Academy award-winner Dudok de Wit (FATHER AND DAUGHTER) makes his feature debut with this must-see tale that is both meditative and mysterious.
