Johnny Ma Wins Best First Feature Film Award For OLD STONE – Canadian Screen Awards!

In Johnny Ma’s thrilling debut feature, a Chinese taxi driver finds himself plunged into a Kafkaesque nightmare where no good deed goes unpunished. Beginning as a gritty social-realist drama before u-turning into a blood-drenched noir, Old Stone follows the repercussions of a car accident in a society where life is cheap and compassion is ruinously expensive.

The Red Turtle
USA 2016. Directed by Michael Dudok de Wit. 72 min. G
Sat 4 Mar 4pm, Sat 11 Mar 4pm, Sat 25 Mar 4pm

This gorgeously animated fable from Academy Award–winning Dutch animator Michaël Dudok de Wit marks the first international co-production from famed Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli. Shipwrecked on a deserted island, a lone man struggles to construct a raft, but his every attempt to leave the island is thwarted by an enormous sea turtle who seems intent on having him stay. Enraged, he attempts to kill the creature that is blocking his escape — but what transpires will instead open a new chapter in his life, one that will instruct him in the ways of companionship and lead him to understand that nature must take its course.
