An animated movie for adults, about loneliness, survival, human contact and even the circle of life. An immersive viewing experience, without dialogue.
Selected by: Job de Wit, Film and music ambassador

Dutch director Michael Dudok de Wit won an Oscar for his animation short Father and Daughter. Now, under the header of legendary Japanese Studio Ghibli, de Wit has produced his first long animation film, The Red Turtle. The movie was selected for Cannes Film Festival’s Un Certain Regard programme and won the Special Prize. The dialogue-free movie tells the tale of a man who finds himself surviving on a deserted island after a shipwreck. Everything changes after he encounters a mysterious turtle.

We Are Public members can attend The Red Turtle in EYE from 14 to 20 July. The exact screening times can be found on the EYE website from 12 July onwards.
