It’s easy to see why The Boy and the World won the top prize at the world’s most respected animation festival: it’s a complete delight for the eyes and ears! With a refreshingly original animation style, the wordless film tells its tale solely through vibrant visuals. A young Brazilian boy ventures from his simple countryside home into a neon-infused, carnivalesque metropolis in search of his father. Employing everything from mosaics to watercolors, the film overflows with wonder and beauty, exploding with captivating colors as well as samba and hip-hop rhythms. (80 mins., DCP)
