Netflix has announced that it has acquired streaming rights for animated feature film “Pachamama” throughout most of the world. The Cesar Award nominated* film was written and directed by Juan Antin’s (“Mercano the Martian”) and is a hybrid animation adventure film about a young boy living in a remote village in the Andes Mountains.
“Pachamama” 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.
“Pachamama” will arrive globally except for in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland and Canada in June 2019.
* Winners of this year’s Cesar Award will be announced on February 22nd
