Synopsis

11-year-old Michael is sailing around the Pacific Ocean with his family: mum, dad, and his sister Becky. Unbeknownst to them, he has also smuggles the family dog, Stella, on board. Michael is so preoccupied about the dog’s wellbeing that he forgets to think about his own, and during a violent storm they are thrown overboard and separated from the rest of the family. They wake on the beach of a remote island, shipwrecked and stranded. However Michael and Stella soon discover that they’re not alone after encountering Kensuke, a Japanese man who has been living there for many years in the aftermath of World War II. Kensuke looks after them, helping them to survive, and also introduces Michael to his own delicate eco-system which is being threatened by outsiders. Kensuke’s Kingdom is based on the beloved children’s novel from Michael Morpurgo, featuring themes around the natural world and friendship.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
