SALSA acquires GOGWANA
Created 09/28/1999 - 23:00
Paris, France-based Salsa Distribution has acquired the Latin American
television distribution rights to the half-hour television special GOGWANA.
Produced by London-based AARGH! Animation Ltd. for S4C, and directed by
Deiniol Morris, GOGWANA is based on THE GOGS, the Stone Age family depicted
in the claymation television series. In the special, after an earthquake
destroys the Gogs' cave, the family goes in search of a new home, and,
along the way, encounters pygmies, dinosaur air-balloons, and pygmy-piloted
pterodactyls. Earlier this year, GOGWANA was nominated for a BAFTA award as
best animated film, and more recently won the best film of the official
competition award at Brazil's ANIMA MUNDI 99.
