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.
