Away U

Wed 21 – Sun 25 Oct


"★★★★ – silent, surreal and entrancing animation" – Guardian


"A beautifully crafted minimalist adventure" – Hollywood Reporter


A boy travels across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home. Along the way he meets different animals and wonders how they came to be 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.
