The Boy and the World US Trailer

Alê Abreu’s 2014 experimental animation adventure O Menino e o Mundo is heading to the US thanks to the good people of GKIDS.

The Boy and the World follows the life of a Boy who lives in a remote village with his parents until one day his Father leaves to work in the city. Feeling his absence, the Boy leaves behind his quiet life and Mother in search of him, only to discover a world filled with strange people and machinery through his multi-colored and abstract eyes.

The Boy and the World is set to open in New York and Los Angeles on December 11, 2015, for the Academy Awards animation qualifiers; with expansion across American through January 2016.
