CAST: Vinicius Garcia, Marco Arelio Campos, Lu Horta DIRECTOR: Ale Abreu TUESDAY FILM SERIES

Cuca's cozy rural life is shattered when his father leaves for 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 as his small world expands. The film's music is on equal footing with the stunning visuals, a soundscape of pan-flute, samba, and Brazilian hip-hop mixing with the whirling carnival colors and exploding fireworks.

2016 Academy Award Nominee: Best Animated Film

The little boy here... is one of the most distinctive and adorable animated characters you'll ever come across, and his introduction to "the world out there" is a moving revelation indeed.

Abreu handcrafted his images, and the imagination from which those images spring is astonishingly fertile.
