"It seems unlikely that a more beautiful film will be released this year." - Donald Clarke, Irish Times

"Creates a magical world, one that pulls you in and leaves you, when it's over, feeling changed by the journey." - Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated THE SECRET OF KELLS comes a breathtakingly gorgeous, hand-drawn masterpiece. Based on the Irish legend of the Selkies, SONG OF THE SEA tells the story of the last seal-child, Saoirse, and her brother Ben, who go on an epic journey to save the world of magic and discover the secrets of their past. Pursued by the owl witch Macha and a host of ancient and mythical creatures, Saoirse and Ben race against time to awaken Saoirse’s powers and keep the spirit world from disappearing forever. As enthralling for adults as it is for children young and old, SONG OF THE SEA is a wonder of magical storytelling and visual splendor that is destined to become a classic. Each Kid Flix showtime is preceded by a short media-literacy introduction by Film Center staff. Recommended for ages 7+
