New Trailer and Poster for Animated Feature AWAY

The acclaimed animation comes to UK/ROI cinemas in August.

Winner of the prestigious Contrechamp Award at last year's Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Gints Zilbalodis's animated feature Away follows a young boy attempting to escape a dark spirit while trapped on a mysterious island. Like the acclaimed 2017 animation The Red Turtle, Away eschews dialogue to tell its story solely through images.

Away is in UK/ROI cinemas from August 28th.

Speaking of the release, Zilbalodis said "I am delighted my feature is being shared with cinema audiences in the UK and Ireland, as watching on the big screen is the most immersive way to experience Away."

Check out the trailer, poster and official synopsis below.

The official synopsis reads:

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.
