Michael Dudok de Wit’s THE RED TURTLE which just premiered in Un Certain Regard at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival to strong reviews, has been picked up for release in the US via Sony Pictures Classics.
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.
“THE RED TURTLE takes you on an ultimate journey through life. It sweeps you up in fantasy, poetry, and awesome visual beauty. Artistically and commercially it is a major movie for all ages. It is a privilege to collaborate with Studio Ghibli, Pascal Cauchetaux, and Wild Bunch in bringing THE RED TURTLE to the American audiences,” said Sony Pictures Classics.
The film is produced by Wild Bunch and Studio Ghibli in association with Why Not Productions.
