Gullane’s Rio 2096 targeted towards Grown Ups

The international market will get a new animated feature that specifically targets adult audiences, courtesy of Brazilian studio Gullane. The film, titled Rio 2096, will use traditional cel-animation instead of CG, which is more prevalent nowadays.

Directed by Brainstorm and Birdwatchers’ screenwriter Luiz Bolognesi, Rio 2096 revolves around four key dates in Brazilian history: its “discovery” by Europeans in 1500, the height of the slave trade in 1800, the military dictatorship era of 1970, and the fictional future Brazil in the year 2096.

History is usually written by its winners. Rio 2096 is told from the viewpoint of its losers,” company founder Fabiano Gullane said in Berlin, where Gullane’s co-production Tabu is screening at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Also on the studio’s animation slate is Fishtronaut: The Movie (Peztronauta), based on the popular kids series (with RioFilmes), and Tarsilinha.
