About the program

"A lot of things you see as a child remain with you…you spend a lot of your life trying to recapture the experience" - Tim Burton

Tim Burton's modern gothic tale weaves elements of romance, old-fashioned horror, drama and fantasy into a magical cinematic experience.

The accompanying discussion focuses on Burton's unique world view to explore characterisation, key themes and visual style.
