Solar Cinema, in collaboration with the Malta International Arts Festival, will today be showing the prize-winning Brazilian animated feature film Boy and the World today.

Boy and the World (2014), directed by Ale Abreu, is a visually captivating, hand-drawn animated feature film that has won several awards. A little boy called Cuca lives a life of quiet wonder, exploring all that the countryside has to offer, but his cosy life is shattered when his father leaves the city, prompting him to embark on a quest to reunite his family.

The young boy’s journey unfolds like a tapestry, the animation taking on greater complexity and variety as his small world expands.

Approaching the city, industrial landscapes are inhabited by animal-machines, whirling carnival colours and exploding fireworks fill the sky above decoupage favelas, while flashing neon advertisements and garish shop windows illuminate the night.

The animated feature film is being shown today at 8.30pm at the Chinese Garden of Serenity, Santa Luċija. Entrance is free. For more information, visit the Solar Cinema Facebook page.
