Privisa is an upcoming animated feature film made in Poland, which is all about a kid who just does not want to grow up. From the creators:
It tells the story of Wilkan, son of the great hunter Borzymir who is about to get his first haircut. He finds out that the elders of the tribe announced the list of the oldest who will be soon "taking the ritual of last journey". His beloved grandfather Stanimir is among them. The distraught boy will do everything to stop the ceremony and that gets him and the whole village (Privisa) a lot of trouble.
Now, why is this on Fine Art? Firstly, because it looks rad! And second, because of a lot of the people involved, who have worked on games like The Witcher 3 and with companies like Electronic Arts.
Also, isn't the setting cool? We see a lot of movies about historical Japan, or Western Europe, but ancient Eastern Europe? Not so much.
It's being directed by Marcin Karolewski (whose Witcher 3 work we showcased recently), and is a team effort between Polish studio Juice (who just opened a Tokyo branch), Platige Films and Flat Foot Films.
