The first international screening of Sir Billi, a CGI-animated film produced entirely in Scotland by husband and wife duo Sascha and Tessa Hartmann, took place on Friday 13 April at the Sebastiani Theatre as part of the 15th Anniversary celebrations for the Sonoma International Film Festival.
It stars Sir Sean Connery as the voice of Sir Billi, a skateboarding grandfather on a quest to save the last remaining beaver in Scotland. Academy Award®-nominated Scottish composer Patrick Doyle (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Sense and Sensibility”) created the film’s music score and also lends his voice as a key character in the film.
The film’s title track, “Guardian of the Highlands,” is sung by British singing legend Dame Shirley Bassey, who reunited with Connery for the first time since she sang the title song for Goldfinger back in the Bond days.
