After the worldwide success of Loving Vincent, this time the director duo DK Welchman and Hugh Welchman focused on one of the most important works of Polish literature, The Peasants. A novel for which its author W.S. Reymont won the Nobel Prize. The central character of the story is the beautiful Jagna, a poor girl with whom the old and rich peasant Boryna falls in love. Despite the protests of his family, he marries her. However, Jagna is faced with the decision of whether a life of contentment is more important to her or her love for Antek, the son of the peasant Boryna. Unfortunately, in the land of tradition, love is not to be preferred. In the film, the directors return to their Polish roots and present Władysław Reymont's novel to the general public using the technique of animated painting, which has already won the hearts of hundreds of thousands of fans around the world thanks to the Oscar-nominated film Loving Vincent. In Jagna, they have not only focused on the novel itself, but have also interpreted into it the paintings of important representatives of the Young Poland movement, such as Józef Chełmoński, Ferdynand Ruszczyc and Leon Wyczółkowski. As they say themselves, this was another journey of discovery for them, which allowed them to delve deeper into the emotional possibilities and aesthetic beauty that animation in the form of a special oil painting can bring to a film narrative.
