About The Peasants

Using an advanced oil painting animation technique seen in Loving Vincent, The Peasants is a visually thrilling rendering of Władysław Reymont’s Nobel Prize-winning tale.

Crops, relationships and dowries preoccupy the wagging tongues of the villagers of Lipke. Jagna is wedded off to a rich widower, but her love for his son threatens to tear all their lives apart.
