From Studio Ghibli, the studio behind timeless animated hits including SPIRITED AWAY and PRINCESS MONONOKE come THE RED TURTLE. Through the story of a man shipwrecked on a tropical island inhabited by turtles, crabs and birds, THE RED TURTLE recounts the milestones in the life of a human being. As Studio Ghibli’s first external co-production, THE RED TURTLE was made in France and directed by Dutch-born, London-based animator Michael Dudok de Wit, whose wordless Oscar-winning short FATHER AND DAUGHTER had become a favorite at Ghibli.

“A quiet little masterpiece of images, each one rich with meaning, that collectively speak to a universal process.” --INDIEWIRE
