With a poetic style much like his Oscar-winning short Father and Daughter, director Michael Dudok de Wit”s first feature-length film The Red Turtle masterfully depicts life”s major milestones through subtle gestures and small visual details — and no dialogue whatsoever.

Conveying profound human emotions in its story of a man shipwrecked on a deserted island, The Red Turtle has been wowing audiences worldwide, winning the hearts of Dutch audiences as well as the prestigious Annecy award.

Animator Bob Wolkers, who worked on the film, will join us for a Q&A.
