Away (U)

  • 75mins | (U)

Away is about a boy travelling across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and return 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.

A wonderful emersive animation for all ages.

Director: Gints Zilbalodis.
