Michael Dudok de Wit on The Red Turtle | Picturehouse Podcast

May 24, 2017

Oscar-winning writer and director Michael Dudok de Wit drops by to talk about his award-winning Studio Ghibli produced animation The Red Turtle. 

Director: Michaël Dudok De Wit. France/Belgium/Japan 2015. 81 mins.

Renowned Japanese animation giant Studio Ghibli’s first-ever international co-production is a perfect collaboration with Oscar-winning Dutch animator Michaël Dudok De Wit. The Red Turtle, almost a decade in the making, is a dialogue-free fable about a castaway on a desert island, and a touching ode to the cycle of life and the resilience of family. Presented with an elegant simplicity, the sublime visuals pack a real emotional punch. Described by critics as a ‘quiet little masterpiece’ and a ‘wordless wonder’, The Red Turtle won the Special Jury Prize in the Un Certain Regard section at this year’s Cannes. Michaël Dudok De Wit previously made the Oscar-winning animated short Father And Daughter in 2000.

Sam talks to actors Bill Nighy and Gemma Arterton about their new film, in cinemas from 21 April, Their Finest. 

Director: Lone Scherfig.
Starring: Gemma Arterton, Sam Clafin, Bill Nighy. UK 2017. 117 mins.

In 1940, a married woman (Gemma Arterton) and a screenwriter (Sam Claflin) develop a growing attraction while working together on a propaganda film about the evacuation of Allied troops from Dunkirk, France. A beautifully crafted costume drama with terrific performances, Lone Scherfig's new film is a quietly subversive, funny and finally moving account of a little known story from one of the darkest, most uncertain periods of British history.
