~~Boy and the World~~
Brazil, 2013, 80 minutes
In celebration of Brasilfest at Seattle Center, Saturday Morning Cartoons is pleased to present the Academy Award-nominated Brazilian animated film, Boy and the World. O Menino e o Mundo, as it is titled in Portuguese, features a lively soundtrack and vibrant, experimental visuals created using a mix of both drawing, painting, and digital animation. The story follows the journey of a young boy through a fantastical, kaleidescopic landscape that captures the wild, magical experience of life from a child's perspective. Playful enough to enthrall kids and with a deeply allegorical plot to enthrall adults, this unique film is a bold, modern maserpiece of animated cinema.
