Sasha searches for her grandfather who is lost in the Antarctic.

 

oda Pictures (A Thunderbird Company) is pleased to be releasing the award-winning French film Long Way North in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal on Oct 14th. 

 

Stunningly rendered in traditional hand-drawn 2D animation, the film is the directorial debut from lauded animator Rémi Chayé. 

Inspired by the first attempted land crossing of the Antarctic continent, this beautifully animated adventure tells the story of 15-year-old Russian aristocrat Sasha, who, when her explorer grandfather mysteriously goes missing on his latest expedition, embarks on an epic adventure to find him and his lost ship, the Davai.

Long Way North screened at TIFF Kids 2016, and won the Audience Award at the 2015 Annecy International Animated Film Festival, as well as the Grand Prize and Governor of Tokyo Award at the Tokyo Animation Festival. The film was nominated at the Seattle Film Festival for the Films4Families Youth Jury Award, and at the São Paulo Int. Film Festival for Best Feature Film.
