Synopsis

One stormy night in 1984, a fishing boat was caught in choppy waters off the coast of Iceland. The boat capsized and its crew drowned — all except one man. Gulli somehow survived the freezing cold sea, and then dragged himself across a volcanic island to safety. Gulli's death-defying experience made him a national celebrity, not to mention a scientific oddity — how had he survived such an extreme situation? 'Seal Man', as he became known, had to come to terms with the tragedy he had been involved with, as well as his newly-found fame. This haunting film tells his incredible true story.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
