Dir. Gints Zilbalodis. Latvia, 2019. 1h 15m.

Multiple award-winning animations about a lonely boy travelling across an island on a motorcycle, trying to get back home. During his journey, he is pursued by an imposing and potentially malevolent spirit. Featuring an atmospheric score and set in a dreamworld of gorgeously drawn landscapes, this beautiful dialogue-free animation explores our universal need to create connections.

“The story is fairytale simple and quite strange, and it's no surprise to hear that Zilbalodis made it up as he went along.” ★★★★ Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

“The animation, in close-up, is often rudimentary (the hero's face is a pink splodge with two eyes), but the haunting music and surreal setting more than compensate.” ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times
