Rules of Summer

This is what I learned last summer...

On the surface, we follow the journey of two brothers as the younger recounts his summer adventures, experiences and lessons learned. Venturing deeper into the dreamlike and surreal story, our imaginations are beset with the colours, images, and feelings that saturate every page.

Dark, strange, powerful, yet also, emotive, challenging, and humorous, Shaun Tan's Rules of Summer offers viewers the opportunity to see and feel something different.

Lindy Burns delivers a thought-provoking reading that encourages us to look closer and let our imaginations soar.
