Dir: Tomm Moore & Nora Twomey | Ireland | 75mins | Cert: PG
An Oscar nominated animation from Ireland, which tells the incredible story of The Book of Kells, one of the most important historical documents of all time.
Living with his uncle in the cloistered walls of the Abby of Kells, young Brendan becomes obsessed with the stories he hears of a yet to be completed book which can turn darkness into light. When Brother Aiden arrives with the incomplete Book of Kells, he entrusts its completion to Brendan, who journeys off into the Irish wilderness, through history, mythology, and most importantly, nature, to find what he needs.
Featuring jaw-dropping animation and a Hero’s Journey to rival Star Wars, the Oscar Nominated The Secret of Kells has been likened to the best of Studio Ghibli. A feast for the eyes and the soul, The Secret of Kells is an exciting animated adventure for children, and a deeper meditation on how nature and culture intersect, and the key role this has played across history.
