Kick start environmental conversations with your family this Plastic Free July with Gulbenkian’s family film screenings of Moana and Ponyo.

In Moana, the daughter of a Polynesian Chief undertakes an oceanic odyssey to save her endangered isle from environmental devastation enlisting the aid of the legendary demigod Maui along the way. Moana and Maui’s quest to restore ecological balance and preserve traditional culture highlights how indigenous peoples are among those most impacted by global warming. Moana will be screened at Gulbenkian on Sunday 18 July at 15.00

Fantastic for younger children, Ponyo is a colourful story of a little boy who befriends a magical fish, who evolves into a young girl.  An environmentalist twist on the little mermaid tale from Studio Ghibli, touching on themes of pollution, global warming, personal responsibility and rising sea levels. Ponyo will be screened at Gulbenkian on Sunday 25 July at 15.00.

Tickets for family film screenings are £3.50 / Baby on laps(0-18months) +£1. For more information and tickets please visit or call 01227 769075.
