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.
