Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History says
Young Cuca’s world changes suddenly when his father leaves home in search of employment in a far away city. Determined to bring his family back together, he sets off on a cross-country odyssey that is as strange as it is wondrous. Erupting with color and visual panache, Ale Abreu’s Boy and the World is a visual and audial treat for the senses. The sounds of Brazilian hip-hop and samba accompany watercolors, hand-drawn pencil sketches, and mosaics as Cuca traverses deeper into the world. Visually, the film may be something only an artist of Abreu’s caliber could imagine, but the backdrop here is one decidedly rooted in the real. The give and take between rich and poor, the ever-increasing pace of change in society and the relationship between the automated, mechanized and handmade are skillfully navigated in a film that works on multiple levels for all ages. Animation/Adventure | No Dialogue | 80 min
