The 2015 Animated Feature Film Oscar nominees range from the Disney hit Big Hero Six to the acclaimed Studio Ghibli release The Tale of the Princess Kaguya. On Feb. 21st, the Regent Square Theater will showcase one of the category’s more obscure nominees with a sneak peek at Song of the Sea.
In the Irish import from Tomm Moore, Oscar-nominated director of The Secret of Kells, Ben and his little sister Saoirse—the last Seal-child—must 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. The film takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land.
Song of the Sea will screen on Feb. 21st and Feb. 22nd. Check website for showtimes. Tickets are $9, $7 for students and seniors.
