Years ago, I mentioned that the North American animation business wouldn’t always be on the forefront of animation across the world. That there will be other voices trying to get a shot at the global industry and marketplace.
While Latin America hasn’t truly panned out (there is one movie from Argentina dealing with Foosball, that is still looking for some distribution in the states) there are two very interesting films – both in 2d, that you should keep an eye on.
The first movie was mentioned by Cartoon Brew back in 2010, and now a trailer has arrived – its called the Last Fiction and its done by Iranian based Hoorhsaksh studios:
Adapted from the Shahnameh, the thousand-year-old epic Persian poem written by Ferdowsi, The Last Fiction tells the story of Kaveh, a blacksmith, who leads a revolt to destroy the devil that has appeared in a prince’s soul.
