Film: Isle of Dogs at the IFI (audio described and captioned screening)

4 Apr 2018 (Past)

Irish Film Institute

When, by executive decree, all the canine pets of Megasaki City are exiled to a vast garbage-dump called Trash Island, 12-year-old Atari sets off alone in a miniature Junior-Turbo Prop and flies across the river in search of his bodyguard-dog, Spots.

There, with the assistance of a pack of newly-found mongrel friends, he begins an epic journey that will decide the fate and future of the entire Prefecture.

Wes Anderson’s second stop-motion animated film (following Fantastic Mr. Fox in 2009) is a typically charming and meticulously detailed outing. The voice cast includes Yoko Ono, Scarlett Johansson, Jeff Goldblum, and, of course, Bill Murray.

There will be Open Captioned screenings at 13.10 on Wednesday, April 4th and 18.20 on Monday, April 9th.

Audio Description will be available on select screenings, please contact the IFI for clarification. Telephone 01 679 5744 or email boxoffice@irishfilm.ie.

I used to sleep on a lamb's wool beanbag next to an electric space heater. That's my territory, I'm an indoor dog!
