Boy and the World
A film by Alê Abreu
Brazil, 80 min

Brazilian artist Alê Abreu’s Academy Award®-nominated masterpiece is a riotous explosion of music and color that critics proclaim is “one of the most beautiful animated features ever made.” (Film Journal International)

Cuca’s cozy rural life is shattered when his father leaves for the city. Determined to reunite his family, Cuca embarks on a journey that unfolds like a tapestry – the film’s stunning visuals becoming more complex as his small world expands. The story of a changing world through the eyes of a curious child, Boy and the World depicts a clash between village and city, nature and industry, the rich and the poor – and despite the tumult, the heart and soul of the people beats on as a song.
