Shout! Factory Films has announced Rémi Chayé's Long Way North will come to theaters next month Los Angeles, New York and a few other major markets with plans plans to subsequently go wider with the release.
The film centers on a Sacha, a young woman determined to battle the elements, social norms, skeptical seafarers and other challenges to find her explorer grandfather and his lost ship, the Davai, somewhere in the North Pole region.
Chayé was the first assistant director and a storyboard artist on The Secret of Kells and, as the trailer shows, that unique spirit comes through in his directorial debut.
Long Way North opens in New York and Los Angeles on September 30th.
