Away (Director: Gints Zilbalodis/Latvia/2019/75mins/ Cert G) Embers, Ballina Arts Centre’s Children’s Film Festival, is back. The festival returns for a fourth year with a programme of films from all over the world with something for children of all ages. Curated by Sara English, the programme includes live-action, animation, and feature films.
AWAY is about a boy travelling across an island on a motorcycle, trying to escape a dark spirit and get back home. Along the way he makes a series of connections with different animals and reﬂects on the possible ways he ended up on the island. Part dream, part reality, AWAY explores our common, universal need to ﬁnd a connection.
Admission €5 per person.
