Ep176: Taking the LONG WAY NORTH with Rémi Chayé

On today's episode, the Kicking the Seat Podcast welcomes director Rémi Chayé to talk about his new animated film, Long Way North! This thrilling family adventure follows a 19th Century Russian teenager on a trek through the Arctic, in search of her missing explorer grandfather. Though Chayé is well known for his work on movies like The Painting and the Oscar-nominated The Secret of Kells, this is his first time as a feature director. Ian spoke with Chayé from Paris last week about stylistic choices, competing with big-studio fare, and epic journeys both real-life and animated.

Long Way North opens this Friday at Chicago's Gene Siskel Film Center, and you can catch two versions of the film, in both the original French-language audio and with an English voice cast. For tickets and more information, visit
