English / Tamil (English subtitles)


Pi's life comprises many journeys: boyhood to manhood, exploring faith and religion - not to mention his family's relocation overseas. Leaving their home in India, taking with them their vast menagerie, the Patels board a ship bound for Canada. But when a devastating storm strikes, Pi finds himself adrift on a lifeboat with a 450-pound Bengal tiger for company. If he is to survive this most perilous situation, Pi must search deep inside to discover his inner strength, courage and resourcefulness. Based on Yann Martel's Man Booker Prize-winning novel, this is an extraordinary, life-affirming tale about survival, spirituality and storytelling.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
