The 33rd Annual Olympia Film Festival presents
NW PREMIERE
THE RED TURTLE
2:30pm

Japanese animation powerhouse Studio Ghibli explores a new creative direction after the retirement of its founder Hayao Miyazaki with this realistically drawn feature created in partnership with Dutch animator Michael Dudok de Wit. This extraordinary tale of a shipwrecked man who establishes a family and a new life on an island inhabited only by majestic animal life is told entirely without dialogue. Few artistic collaborations yield the perfect synthesis of sensibilities found in The Red Turtle. Not only is the artwork gorgeous to behold, but it showcases the best ways in which Studio Ghibli productions maintain a certain elegant simplicity that points to deeper truths. This is a quiet little masterpiece of images, each one rich with meaning, that collectively speak to a universal process.
Director: Michael Dudok de Wit/ 2017 / Japan, France / 80 min
