After the successful India Release of Asghar Farhadi’s 2016 Drama The Salesman, Sunil Doshi’s Alliance Media is bringing to Indian cinephiles one of the most celebrated Brazilian animation feature films, The Boy And The World on 9th Feb 2018 in select cinemas in India.
Written and directed by Ale Abreu, the film is originally from Brazil and was nominated at the 88th Academy Awards for Best Animated Feature. The film was created using a mix of drawing, painting and digital animation.
The film is a heartwarming story of a little boy Cuca who goes on an adventurous quest in search of his father and discovers a fantastic world dominated by animal-machines and strange beings. The film talks about the issues of the modern world through the eyes of this little Cuca.
Says Mr. Sunil Doshi on why he acquired this film and the reason to bring it to quality Indian audiences:
“The visually thrilling film backed up with a refreshingly different storyline will enthrall younger viewers while resonating deeply with adults”.
The film is being released in select theatres in Mumbai & Bangalore and will be expanded to other centers steadily. A detailed school contract program is being set in motion to get school children to watch this film along with their parents.
The blueprint of Indian film business still remains quite vague as far as world cinema is concerned. However, people like Sunil Doshi who has maintained a stance of being a standalone film activist for decades make occasional waves in the otherwise mundane Fridays of India. He is the man who has brought Farhadi’s Oscar-winning film to Indian theatres (subtitles in English) along with Oscar-nominated Turkish Drama Mustang released directly on Amazon Prime & Winter Sleep by Nuri Belge Ceylan and now brings for Indian cinephiles the much celebrated Brazilian animation feature film The Boy And The World ‘which has many international awards under his novel initiative, ‘Sunil Doshi Presents’.
Doshi’s latest venture under his company Alliance Media and Entertainment promises to bring more of world cinema to Indian multiplexes in 2018 starting with The Boy And The World this Friday.
