Trailer for the upcoming hand-drawn animated film THE GLASSWORKER

Mano Animation Studios has revealed the first trailer for an animated film they produced titled The glassmaker.

This is a hand-drawn animated feature film set in a location loosely inspired by Pakistan. The story follows “a young Vincent and his father Tomas run the best glass workshop in the country and find their lives turned upside down by an impending war in which they want no part.

“The arrival in their town of an army colonel and his young, talented violinist daughter, Alliz, disrupts their reality and tests the relationship between father and son. The love that develops between Vincent and Alliz is constantly tested by their fathers’ differing opinions.

“It is a time when patriotism and social standing are considered more important than free thought and artistic pursuits. It’s a time when love isn’t relevant.”

The film was directed by Usman Riaz and this is his first feature film. As you can see from the art style, the film was heavily inspired by Studio Ghibli.

The film features the voices of Art Malik, Sacha Dhawan, Anjli MohindraAND Tony Jayawardene.

Mano Animation Studios is based in Karachi and will premiere at the 2024 Annecy Film Festival in France this summer. It will open in Pakistan first this July. There’s no word on when it will be released in the States.
