The Embassy of Brazil in London presents next Wednesday Alê Abreu‘s Oscar nominated animation Boy and the World – a cautionary tale about globalization that illustrates issues of the modern world through the eyes of a child.
The story is about a young boy setting off on a fantastical journey in search of his disappeared father. Despite his family’s poverty, young Cuca lives a satisfying life, full of wonder at his rural surroundings, until his father goes on a train trip and disappears. While searching for his father, Cuca meets a wide variety of people as he journeys from a farming camp to the ocean and a large factory and then back to the big city.
Boy And The World teaches above all the dangers of the massification of the economy, of the mind, and of the soul.
