Boy and the World

June 26, 2018

A film by Alê Abreu

Brazil, 2013, 80 min
PG

Brazilian artist Alê Abreu’s Academy Award-nominated masterpiece is a riotous explosion of music and color, a  breathtakingly original and vibrant cinematic experience that depicts the wonders and struggles of the modern  world as seen through the eyes of a young boy.

Cuca’s cozy rural life is shattered when his father leaves for the city, prompting him to embark on a quest to reunite  his family. The young boy’s journey unfolds like a tapestry, the animation taking on greater complexity as his small  world expands. Entering civilization, industrial landscapes are inhabited by animal-machines, with barrios of  decoupage streets and shop windows and flashing neon advertisements that illuminate the night. The story depicts a  clash between village and city, hand crafted and mechanized, rich and poor – and throughout the tumult, the heart  and soul of the people beats on as a song.
