This multi award-winning masterpiece is coming to digital download platforms from 18th January
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.
Director, writer, producer, animator and film score creator Gints Zilbalodis worked on the ﬁlm for three and a half years, writing the story, creating the beautifully animated landscapes and characters, and composing and recording the enchanting music to this stunning dialogue-free ﬁlm. This single handed creation from Zilbalodis on a shoestring budget took critics by storm, gaining an 100% fresh rating on rotten tomatoes and winning the prestigious Contrechamp Award at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019.
Following on from its UK and Irish cinema release in August, AWAY is available to pre-order now from Apple TV and iTunes. It can be purchased from Sky Store, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Rakuten and Sony from January 18th 2021.
