Also, don’t miss The Red Turtle – Studio Ghibli’s first co-production is about a man getting to grips with life on a desert island. Made in France this year, ‘this mature, dialogue free, traditionally animated film is the result of a unique co-production between Japan’s Studio Ghibli and London-based Oscar-winning filmmaker Michael Dudok de Wit’.
