Remi Chayé's critically acclaimed animation LONG WAY NORTH comes to DVD from 10th October.
The 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.
Stunningly rendered in traditional hand-drawn 2D animation and winner of the coveted Annecy International Animation Festival's Audience Award, the film is the directorial debut from lauded animator Rémi Chayé, and was co-produced by French studio Sacrebleu Productions and acclaimed Danish animation company Norlum (Song of the Sea). This DVD features both English and French language versions of the film.
It's a lovely story which promotes some fabulous life lessons about never giving up and family loyalty. It's also lovely to see such a strong female lead character, in a film that will appeal to both sexes.
We started off watching in English but, as we're a bilingual family, we quickly swapped over to the French version because the sound is better. It has English subtitles so if the sound doesn't sound quite right to you, you can always swap languages and brush up on your French as you watch !

Genre: Animation, Adventure
Language: English / French
Running time: 80 mins (approx.)
