CULVER CITY, Calif. (March 20, 2017) – A remarkable collaboration between Academy Award®-winning director/animator Michael Dudok de Wit (2000, Best Animated Short Film, Father and Daughter) and the legendary animation house Studio Ghibli (2003 Academy Award®-winner, Best Animated Feature Spirited Away; My Neighbor Totoro), THE RED TURTLE arrives on Blu-ray™, DVD & Digital on May 2 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. A stunning, wordless examination of one man’s solitary search for survival and companionship, THE RED TURTLE was an Academy Award®-nominee for Best Animated Feature Film, won both the Annie Award for Best Independent Animated Film and the Un Certain Regard Prize at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival and has a “Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. THE RED TURTLE was also an official selection at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival.



Special features on THE RED TURTLE include two fascinating behind-the-scenes featurettes and an AFI Fest Q&A with director Michael Dudok de Wit.



Synopsis

Marking the much-anticipated return of Studio Ghibli, this masterfully animated fantasy film tells the story of a man shipwrecked at sea who becomes stranded on a beautiful but desolate island. He learns to live in isolation, seemingly tormented in his efforts to escape the island by a giant red turtle. Miraculously, soon he comes upon a young woman, also lost at sea, and they create a family together.



THE RED TURTLE is directed by Michael Dudok de Wit and written by Dudok de Wit and Pascale Ferran. Produced by Isao Takahata, Valérie Schermann and Christophe Jankovic.



Special Features:

· The Birth of The Red Turtle

· The Secrets of The Red Turtle

· AFI Fest Q&A with Director Michael Dudok de Wit



THE RED TURTLE has a running time of 80 minutes. It is rated PG for some thematic elements and peril.
