Isle of Dogs (dog-friendly screening) at Herne Hill Free Film Festival
Sat 25 May 2019 | 7:30 pm - 10:30 pmFree
Herne Hill Free Film Festival is hosting a screening of “Isle of Dogs” on Saturday 25 May 2019, doors opening at 7.30pm, film starting at 9pm, in Brockwell Park. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, on a lead and ensuring they are cleaned up after.
In celebration of all Herne Hill hounds, we bring Wes Anderson’s award winning stop-motion animated Isle of Dogs Movie to Brockwell Park for this year’s biggest outdoor screening.
In the fictional Japanese city of Megasaki 20 years into the future, all dogs have been exiled to Trash Island following an outbreak of canine flu. We follow 12 year old Atari, the orphaned nephew of Megasaki’s evil mayor, Kobayashi. Atari hijacks a plane and crash lands on Trash Island in search of his beloved guard dog Spots (voiced by Liev Schreiber) and aided by a motley crew of mutts, voiced by a star studded cast including Bill Murray (his 8th collaboration with Anderson), Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bryan Cranston and Yoko Ono, to name but a few, they lead us on a quirky canine crusade!
Anderson uses his signature symmetrical compositions, carefully curated colour palettes and quirky eclectic soundtrack to create a dreamy dystopian landscape for this age-old tale of the bond between human and dog. And since everyone in #hernehill seems to own a dog these days, Brockwell Park is the pawfect location for this screening. See you there!
OUTDOOR / FILM STARTS: 9.00pm (Doors open 7:30pm).
Bring something to sit on and whatever you need to stay warm and dry. Your dog is welcome to watch too but please ensure you keep him / her on a lead and clear up any doggy doo-doo after.
Director: Wes Anderson / Cert: PG / Running Time: 101mins / Year: 2018 / Country: USA, Germany
