Sirocco and the Kingdom of the Winds (U*)

Family Film Week

Two cats fly through the air against a magical winter backdrop.

When Juliette and Carmen are sent to stay with their neighbour, they are unexpectedly plunged into a world of mystery and magic in this stunning new animation from director Benoît Chieux.

Agnes, a children’s fantasy author, has written stories of a faraway land featuring a mysterious wizard named Sirocco. But somehow this fictional world has come to life and when Agnes is asleep, Juliette and Carmen – two young girls she is babysitting - are sucked into the pages of these strange tales, complete with cat transformations, alligator air ships, toad-like mayors and bird headed opera divas.

Like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and The Yellow Submarine – with a hunk of Ghibli thrown in for good measure –  this surreal and mesmerising adventure, revels in the journey through this intricately animated realm.

Why not come along in the morning from 10am before the film for our free (that’s right, FREE!) drop-in film themed workshops with Chocolate Films.

Please note: This screening is for families to attend as a group. Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count! 

 Please book early to avoid disappointment.
