The Turtle and The Sea follows the story of a Chinese Kung Fu master who travels to England to try and raise money for his mother’s heart operation. He falls in love with a British singer.

Dorset-born filmmaker, Edgar Wright, best known for his critically acclaimed films Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, and his most recent Box Office hit, Baby Driver, returned to Arts University Bournemouth to share anecdotes about his college days.
Wright was born in Poole and grew up in Swanage and Somerset. He speaks fondly of his childhood days, telling students “some of the earliest stuff I made has an escapist element to it, because I grew up in Dorset and Somerset“. He studied a National Diploma in Audio-Visual Design at AUB (Bournemouth and Poole College as it was then) between 1992-1994, before going on to make his first feature film, A Fistful of Fingers, shortly after in 1995.
