Produced, animated and scored by debuting director Zilbalodis, ‘Away’ plays quite unlike anything that has been produced in years. The film follows the silent journey of a man and his bird as they traverse a vast land- scape by motorbike, pursued by a shadowy monster. It might be one of the most relax-ing chase-sequences conceived, a hypnotic and poetic work of vast beauty. The film’s minimalist art style and storytelling creates a cinematic space for meditation and reflec- tion. Zilbalodis will give a masterclass on the production of ‘Away’ on Monday February 3.
