The Peasants

The Peasants

Australian Premiere

“A ravishingly beautiful visual triumph.” — The Hollywood Reporter

Jagna is an independent young woman determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th-century Polish village — a hotbed of gossip and ongoing feuds, held together, rich and poor, by pride in their land and adherence to colourful traditions and a deeply-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.

Adapted from the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Wladyslaw Reymont, The Peasants is the latest film from the Oscar-nominated team behind Loving Vincent. Directors DK Welchman & Hugh Welchman use the meticulous painted animation technique to create a visually stunning world that brings to life classic 19th and 20th century Polish paintings.
