View Trailer

Brought to the screen with stunning animation and a spectacular score by veteran Studio Ghibli composer Joe Hisaishi, this vivid eco-conscious adventure is based on Daisuke Igarashi’s award-winning manga.

Teenager Ruka has always been fascinated by the sea. Both her parents are oceanographers, and her dad works at the local aquarium where, when Ruka was younger, she saw a glowing ghost calling to her from the water. After meeting Umi and Sora, two boys raised by dugongs, she’s drawn back into the ocean’s vivid depths with her new friends – just as the world’s marine life begins to mysteriously disappear.

The latest film from the animation studio behind The Animatrix, Children of the Sea wades into a breathtaking visual world, pairing its vibrant, sometimes psychedelic imagery not only with an engrossing fantasy tale, but also a timely message about the importance of the planet’s oceans.
