Song of the Sea
Song of the Sea / 2014 / Subtitled / 1hr&33mins / Rated PG
As part of Children’s Mental Health Week 2023, we will be enjoying Song of the Sea, an animated magical Irish folk tale that portrays how strong emotions such as sadness and grief are part of the human experience and the importance of navigating them.
A beautifully hand-drawn animation, Song of the Sea tells the story of 10-year-old Ben and his little sister Saoirse – the last Seal-child – who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. A story about family, heart and culture which is inspired by the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land.
“Song of the Sea blends Celtic legends, bravura design and animation, and intelligent storytelling that understands but never patronises young viewers, to create an exquisite and rewarding work.” Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
Doors & refreshments open at 3:45pm for a 4pm start. Affordable refreshments and popcorn stand on site.
This event is part of Formative Film, a National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network funded project.
