Oscar Nominee: Best Animated Feature.
Working in collaboration with Japan’s famed Studio Ghibli, Oscar-winning shorts animator Michael Dudok de Wit has created a magical and multilayered fable about a castaway determined to escape a deserted tropical island. The only thing stopping him from sailing away on his raft? A red turtle. Dialogue-free but beautifully scored, this debut feature recounts the milestones in the life of a human being in mesmerizing fashion.
