State Theatre - Sydney Film Festival: Children of the Sea Premiere, 4:30pm, From $14, Age: All

Young Ruka and her supernaturally gifted friends go on a magical adventure under the sea, in this gorgeous anime adaptation of Daisuke Igarashi’s manga of the same name.

When Ruka is suspended from her school handball team, she decides to visit her father, who works at an aquarium. She soon meets and befriends Umi, a boy who seems at one with the ocean and has the ability to communicate with sea creatures. She also meets his older brother, the sickly and haughty Sora. Together they notice a song of the sea that's luring all types of sea creatures away from their natural habitats. And Ruka discovers that her affinity with the sea is far greater than she imagined. Director Ayumu Watanabe (Doraemon the Movie: Nobita's Dinosaur) has crafted a film of great beauty, depicting a magical seascape setting for this fantastic adventure. Selected for the Contrechamp Competition at the prestigious Annecy Festival.
