A rare BIG screen showing of the beloved animated classic from Ireland’s Tomm Moore (Song of the Sea) about a young boy who is beckoned to adventure when a celebrated master illuminator arrives with an ancient book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers.
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 the isle of Iona carrying an ancient but unfi nished book, brimming with secret wisdom and powers. To help complete the magical book, Brendan has to overcome his deepest fears on a dangerous quest that takes him 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 along the way. But with the barbarians closing in, will Brendan’s determination and artistic vision illuminate the darkness and show that enlightenment is the best fortifi cation against evil? (France, Belgium & Ireland, 2009, 75 min., English, Scottish Gaelic & Irish, G, DCP | Dir. Tomm Moore & Nora Twomey)
