Family Flicks Film Series: Watership Down
Co-presented with the UCLA Film and Television Archive
Appropriate for ages 11+
When one among them receives premonitions of apocalyptic doom, a warren of rabbits sets off on an epic journey, fraught with peril, to find a safe haven and freedom. Director Martin Rosen brings Richard Adams’ classic, allegorical children’s novel to the big screen with rich, impressionistic animation without dampening the story’s still potent social and political subtexts. (1978, 35mm, 92 min. DIR/SCR: Martin Rosen. CAST: John Hurt, Richard Briers, Michael Graham Cox.)
Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.
Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
The Family Flicks Film Series is copresented by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Matinee screenings for families and film buffs, featuring new and classic films from around the world.
