Comprised of more than 40,000 oil paintings, this awe-inspiring adaptation of Władysław Reymont's Nobel Prize-winning novel is the latest animated film from Oscar®-nominated directing duo DK and Hugh Welchman (LOVING VINCENT). In 19th-century Poland, the rural village of Lipce sustains itself on its farmland. Jagna is a beguiling young beauty caught in a lustful affair with married farmhand Antek (Robert Gulacyzk). But when she's forced to marry his wealthy landowner father, it sets off a chain of events that will tear the town apart. Taking inspiration from the Young Poland modernist movement, the paintings range from swirling impressionism to hyperrealism; the film's visually dazzling sequences are bolstered by symphonic folk tunes from rapper and composer Lukasz Rostkowski aka L.U.C. Telling the tragic story of a young woman caught in the cruel hands of the patriarchy, THE PEASANTS is a stunningly immersive experience. Official Selection, 2023 AFI FEST and Toronto film festivals. DIR/SCR DK Welchman; DIR/SCR/PROD Hugh Welchman, from the novel by Władysław Reymont; PROD Sean M. Bobbitt. Poland/Serbia/Lithuania, 2023, color, 114 min. In Polish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
