The Boy and the World

 

(O Menino e o Mundo) Director: Alê Abreu, BR, 2013, no dialogue, 80 min

Do you think that animated films are just for children? And what about animated film about children that is for everyone? Embark on a fascinating journey of a young boy looking for his father in the surreal world of contemporary Brazil. Rediscover the today´s world through the eyes of a little boy, for whom the most ordinary trip on a rotten barrow represents a bewitching adventure of life and death. The film goes beyond the current mainstream of animated film which tends to offend adults by its infantilism and irritates children by moral connotations. On the contrary, The Boy and the World tells an original story of the global world and children's boundless imagination. Experienced animator Alê Abreu reflected here the hectic period of economic boom in Brazil in wordless fanciful images of magic realism, when we rediscover through trivial adventure what we already discovered and learn what we have known all along. But nevertheless we marvel at the hidden world with which we struggle every day.
