In the wondrously colorful The Snail and the Whale, Dame Diana Rigg, Oscar winner Sally Hawkins, and comedian Rob Brydon are the voices behind the tale of a tiny snail who, longing to see the world, hitches a ride on the tail of a giant humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing journey under the sea, past icebergs and volcanoes, and with sharks, penguins, and all manner of undersea animals. The little snail feels so small in the vastness of the world until the whale ends up beached in a bay.  

US premiere | UK | 27 min. | English | 2019
