AWAY is an amazing feature length animated film; written, produced and directed entirely by one very talented person: Director and Animator, Gints Zilbalodis. Gints 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 the film.

The story is about a boy traveling 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, and in a way, the story-line/narrative is a reflection of the creative process of the making of the film itself. The main idea of AWAY is our common, universal need to find a connection.

“I’m very happy to have finally finished the film after so many years... And I can’t wait to share it with the world because watching films in a theatre is the best way to create a connection with people.” – Gints Zilbalodis
