SF – The Secret of Kells Director’s Workshop

Director Tomm Moore gives an interactive presentation and post-screening Q&A on Sunday, September 26th at 3:00 pm.

Magic, fantasy and Celtic mythology come together in a riot of color and detail that dazzle the eyes in The Secret of Kells. This 2010 Academy Award Nominee for Best Animated Feature is a sweeping story about the power of imagination and faith to carry humanity through dark times. Young Brendan lives in a remote medieval outpost under siege from barbarian raids. But a new life of adventure beckons when a celebrated master illuminator arrives from foreign lands carrying an ancient but unfinished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears and venture into the enchanted forest where mythical creatures hide. It is here that he meets the fairy Aisling, a mysterious young wolf-girl, who helps him fulfill his dangerous quest.

Note: Viking attacks and mythic monsters may be scary for younger children.
