From the creators of the Oscar-nominated LOVING VINCENT, The Peasants, a visually stunning render of Władysław Reymont’s Nobel Prize-winning tale and is Poland’s submission for Best International Feature at the Academy Awards 2024.
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. Like their award-winning Loving Vincent, DK and Hugh Welchman’s latest film evokes a world of breathtaking beauty and occasional brutality, exposing the underbelly of a patriarchal 19th-century rural community.
Vertigo Releasing presents The Peasants in cinemas 8 December.
