Away (U)

By Gints Zilbalodis, 75 mins

AWAY is about a boy travelling across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home. Along the way he makes a series of connections with different animals and reflects on the possible ways he ended up on the island. Part dream, part reality, AWAY explores our common, universal need to find a connection.

The multiple award-winning film took the prestigious Contrechamp Award at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019. Director and animator Gints Zilbalodis worked on the film for three and a half years, writing the fascinating story, creating the beautifully animated landscapes and characters, and composing and recording the enchanting music to this stunning dialogue-free film.

“…its genuine beauty, brought about by its strong visual storytelling and an excellent score” ★★★★EMPIRE

“For parents weary of the rubber-faced, sneering clatter of your average half-term studio release, Away’s minimalism represents a blessed oasis of calm, while for the kids, its simple style and wordless story represent boundless opportunities for imagination and magic.“ ★★★★ CINE-VUE
