Selkirk, The Real Robinson Crusoe
SELKIRK, THE REAL ROBINSON CRUSOE
Sunday, January 25, 3pm
(Walter Tournier, Argentina/Uruguay/Chile, animation, 2012, 80 min)
Ages 8+. In Spanish with English subtitles.
Selkirk, an unruly, selfish pirate, is the sailing master of an English galley sailing the South Seas in search of treasure. With his merry band of pirates (one of whom is a girl in disguise), life is one adventure after the next. But after he is abandoned on an uninhabited island, he changes his outlook on the world and learns to survive alone. His story became Daniel Defoe's inspiration for the novel Robinson Crusoe.
Notes for parents: Some bad pirate behavior in this stop-action animated film includes mild cursing and one instance of a derogatory comment about the girl, but there is also a strong female lead.
