Moon Man, the beautiful animated feature produced in association with Cartoon Saloon, will screen tomorrow at London’s Barbican Centre as part of the Framed Film Festival.  The screening comes ahead of its Irish and UK cinema release next month.

Moon Man is the lively and offbeat animated feature from the Oscar nominated producers of The Secret of Kells, Cartoon Saloon.  Based on a book by the renowned children’s illustrator Tomi Ungerer, the film tells the story of the man on the moon who comes to Earth on the tail of a passing comet. Directed by Stephan Schesch and Sarah Clara Weber, the film showcases the stunning artwork of Ungerer’s original book.

The film will be released in selected Irish cinemas by Wildcard Distribution on December 27th. It will also go on release in Picturehouse cinemas (with the support of multi-service agency Coffee & Cigarettes) throughout the UK on 28th and 29th December.

Moon Man is an Irish/French/German co-production and was produced by Ross Murray and Paul Young for Cartoon Saloon along with Schesch Filmkreation and Le Pacte.
