As we head back into lockdown trips to the cinema are no longer possible but QUAD is still working to bring you exciting new films.
We are delighted to have teamed up with Munro Film Distribution to bring you brand new animated film Away (U) which you can stream in your home, with your rental directly supporting QUAD.
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.
The multiple award-winning film took the prestigious Contrechamp Award at Annecy International Animation Film Festival 2019. Director and animator Gints Zilbalodis 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 this stunning dialogue-free ﬁlm.
A rental, valid for 48 hours, of Away costs £4.99.
“Silent, surreal and entrancing animation“ ★★★★ Leslie Felperin, The Guardian
