      EVENT DETAILS
      Song of the Sea (2014)

      Ten-year-old Ben and his younger sister Saoirse live in a lighthouse towering over the sea with their gruff father, who is unable to get over the loss of his late wife. Saoirse, now six, has never uttered a word, though Ben happily chatters away for both of them. But we soon learn that Saoirse, like her mother before her, is a selkie – mythological creatures that live as seals in the sea but shed their skins to live as humans on land. Just as Saoirse undertakes her first visit to her otherworldly life beneath the waves, their grandmother arrives to take the children to live with her in the city, far away from the sea. Without her magical sealskin, Saoirse soon falls gravely ill. Can Ben and Saoirse find their way home before it’s too late? Directed by Tomm Moore (1h33m / rated PG) Free tickets will be released via the DCA.
