Run Time: 80 minutes
When a father is forced to leave his family to find work, it creates a hole his son can’t seem to fill. Eager to be with his dad, and without his mother’s knowledge, the confused child embarks on a journey to find him. Along the way, he encounters a variety of colorful people who help him on his path-and some who don’t. At his young age, it’s overwhelming and downright scary at times. Mature beyond his years, he pushes on, never relenting in his mission. Can the tiny boy survive the big world to find his dad? Directed by Ale Abreu, THE BOY AND THE WORLD is a complex animated film unlike any other. The creative visuals will keep you glued to the screen, absorbing every stroke of the brush and bringing each character to life. Though certainly a family film, it also has a broad appeal. The story reads like a children’s book, yet its intelligence, unique style, and nearly dialogue-less approach will easily appeal to older audiences and even fans of the avant-garde. (Minimal dialogue and no subtitles) – E.F.
