Fans of animation will want to catch Away, the impressive debut from one-man animation studio Gints Zilbalodis. The 26-year old Latvian wrote, directed, animated, edited and composed the music for the film, in which a boy travels across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home. Along the way he meets various different animals and reflects on the possible ways he ended up on the island. Part dream, part reality, this beautifully animated, dialogue-free feature explores our universal need to find a connection. 

The multiple award-winning Away took the prestigious Contrechamp Award at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019. 

A pleasure to look at... it's gorgeous
