From the filmmakers of the Academy Award-nominated film “Loving Vincent” comes “The Peasants”.

“The Peasants” tells the story of Jagna, a young woman determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th century Polish village – a hotbed of gossip and on-going feuds, held together, rich and poor, by pride in their land, adherence to colorful traditions and deep-rooted patriarchy.

When Jagna finds herself caught between the conflicting desires of the village’s richest farmer, his eldest son, and other leading men of the community, her resistance puts her on a tragic collision course with the community around her.

“Grade A. It’s both exactly what you’d expect as a follow-up to ‘Loving Vincent’ and nothing at all what you’d expect. It doesn’t just repeat a past triumph, but goes deeper.” — Christian Blauvelt, IndieWire

“One of the most impressive animated films of the year by far! It is another jaw-dropping feature — an extraordinary accomplishment that feels like another step forward for what animation can do.” — Ross Bonaime, Collider
