We hope you will post and share the news that the film will be available for viewing starting THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 7th on Netflix in over 180 countries!
Pachamama is a hybrid animation adventure film about a young boy living in a remote village in the Andes Mountains. The film follows Tepulpaï, a mischievous 10-year-old who dreams of becoming a shaman. As the villagers are gathering to make an offering to their great spirit Pachamama, the ceremony is disrupted by an Incan overlord who confiscates the town’s golden statue. Tepulpaï sees the chance to show his mettle and sets off to recapture the irreplaceable treasure, joined (whether he likes it or not) by his friend Naira and her smart-talking pet llama. Together they make a journey across uncharted lands, full of unknown obstacles and dangers.
The film is produced by Academy Award® nominee Didier Brunner (The Old Lady and the Pigeons, Kirikou and the Sorceress, The Triplets of Belleville, The Secret of Kells and Ernest and Celestine). Additionally, Damien Brunner (Folivari), Olivier de Bannes (O2B Films), Pierre Urbain (Doghouse Films) and Brice Garnier (Kaïbou Productions) served as producers with Blue Spirit Animation and Haut et Court as co-producers. Bannes, Patricia Valeix and Nathalie Hertzberg served as co-writers alongside Antin, with the participation of Christophe Poujol, Jean-Marc Pannetier, Christine Ponzevera and Isabelle Blanchard.
The film features an original score by Pierre Hamon, recorded with thousand-year-old pre-Columbian instruments, and the song Somos la Nueva Tierra is written by Antin and arranged by Hamon and Marc Hazart. The graphic creation is by Antin and Maria Hellemeyer.
