By Rawls — Mar 21, 2012, 02:11 pm EDT
Longway North is a proposed animated feature in development from director Rémi Chayé (storyboards, The Secret of Kells, assistant director, Le Tableau), writers Claire Paoletti and Patricia Valeix, and Paris-based Sacrebleu Productions.
Sasha, a young Russian artistocratic girl at the end of the 19th century, dreams of the Great North and languishes over Oloukine, her grandfather, a renowned scientist and Arctic explorer, who has not returned from his last expedition to conquer the North Pole.
He transmitted his vocation to Sasha which is far from satisfying her parents as they have already arranged for their daughter to marry.
She revolts against this destiny, flees and is resolved to going to join Oloukine a longway north.
A wonderful style for feature animation to say the least.
