Boy and the World, the spell-binding animated film from Brazil’s Alê Abreu, follows the story of a young boy who leaves his village in search of his missing father. His journey propels him into a technicolor world populated with animal-machines and extraordinary beings. It was nominated at the 88th Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature. Music with no dialogue. 80 minutes.

"Alê Abreu’s 'Boy and the World' is unequivocally the best animated film of the year."
