Screening

Boy and the World

When: Thu., Dec. 31 2015

Consider taking this New Year’s Eve afternoon to enjoy a film inside the Detroit Film Theatre at the Detroit Institute of Arts. This quaint Brazilian cartoon follows Cuca as he enjoys the quiet wonder of living in the countryside until his father leaves for the city and his little life is shattered. As he travels to the city in hopes of reuniting his family, the film takes a turn. The story is told through stunning visuals paired with the rich sounds of samba and Brazilian hip-hop — there’s absolutely no dialogue. This flick is as much for adults as it is for children. Starts at 3 p.m.; 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-833-7900; dia.org; admission is free for Oakland, Wayne, and Macomb County residents.
