BASIC INFORMATION

THE PEASANTS

ORIGINAL TITLE: Chłopi

DIRECTOR: Dorota Kobiela

PRODUCER: BreakThru Films

GENRE: Animation

PREMIERE: 2022

BreakThru Films, the animation studio behind the Oscar® nominated ‘Loving Vincent’ and Oscar® winning ‘Peter & The Wolf’ has commenced principal photography on their new film ‘The Peasants’ based upon the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Wladyslaw Reymont. The film will be directed by Oscar® nominated director Dorota Kobiela and will be produced in the same painting technique as her previous film ‘Loving Vincent’. Today the studio dropped the concept teaser for the new movie, which once again brings paintings to life to tell a powerful emotional story.

’The Peasants’ is a tragic story of a peasant girl Jagna forced to marry a much older, wealthy farmer Boryna, despite her love for his son Antek. With time, Jagna becomes the object of envy and hate of the villagers and has to fight to preserve her independence. Set in the Polish countryside on the cusp of the 19th and 20th Centuries, the story’s dramatic turns tie into the changing seasons, hard labour in the fields and traditional local holidays.

The epic novel of Wladyslaw Reymont will be brought to life using the popular realist and pre-impressionist paintings from the 19th Century, with an emphasis on the Young Poland Movement and the works of such artists as Józef Chełmoński, Ferdynand Ruszczyc and Leon Wyczółkowski. The team feels that this style perfectly reflects the spirit of the book.
