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.

Reviews
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.
Miriam Di Nunzio, Chicago Sun-Times
Abreu handcrafted his images, and the imagination from which those images spring is astonishingly fertile.
