Watership Down is a faithful big-screen adaptation of Richard Adam's classic British dystopian novel about a community of rabbits under terrible threat from modern forces.  With its naturalistic hand-drawn animation, dreamily expressionistic touches, gorgeously bucolic background design, Watership Down is an emotionally arresting, dark-tones allegory about freedom amid political turmoil.  Watership Down will be introduced by artist, photographer, and film producer Lee Fernside.

Families on Film is a collaboration of the Toledo Museum of Art and the University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film.

Tickets are $5 for Museum members, $7 for nonmembers.
