Away at HOME

After a mysterious crash landing, a young boy wakes up alone on an exotic island. He’s being chased by a dark spirit, although it’s unclear whether the spirit means to help or harm the boy. Written, produced, directed, scored, and animated entirely by award-winning Latvian filmmaker Gints Zilbalodis, Away was beautifully crafted over a period of more than three years. The story, told without dialogue over a series of breath-taking backgrounds, is equally inspired by reality, dreams, and waking fantasies.
