Song of the Sea is a gorgeous, animated retelling of Irish selkie myths that has enthralled children and adults alike.

10-year-old Ben can’t help but resent little sister Saoirse when their mother mysteriously disappears after she is born. But when Ben discovers Saoirse is actually a selkie – and her life is in danger from Macha the Owl Witch – he finds himself in a race against time to set aside his broken heart and bring their family together again. A rhapsodic, magical-realist celebration of folk tale, imagery and the importance of passing on tradition.

Song of the Sea​ is shown in parallel to our current exhibition of work by Icelandic design collective Vík Prjónsdóttir and the screening is free to attend.
