Watch the gorgeous trailer for The Boy and The World


The Boy and the World has been on my radar for a few months after seeing still from the film. This Brazilian animated feature won great acclaim at film festivals, and is currently on the shortlist for Best Animated Feature.

Told without dialogue and entirely through music and images, The Boy and the World looks like a children’s picture book in full motion. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the imagery alone, director Alê Abreu seems to have crafted something really special.

The Boy and The World will be out in New York and LA on December 11th, with a wider release to follow in January 2016. You can check out a poster for the film in the gallery.
