Join us for a livestreamed event with award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, award-winning stop-motion director Mark Gustafson and actor Ewan McGregor.
Hailed as this century’s leading fantasy filmmaker – creating films such as Pan’s Labyrinth and the Oscar-winning The Shape of Water – del Toro’s new stop-motion animated film, Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio directed alongside Gustafson, reimagines Carlo Collodi’s classic story as a Mussolini-era parable. Like The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth, which are set against the terror of Franco’s Spain, it is a story of children fighting back against the cruel forces of fascism in wartime Europe.
Join del Toro, Gustafson and award-winning actor Ewan McGregor, who voices Sebastian J. Cricket, as they talk to film writer Ellen E Jones about the making of this critically-acclaimed new film and discuss the inspirations behind it. You will also have the rare opportunity to put your questions to one of cinema’s most influential artists.
Pinocchio is available to stream on Netflix now.
