Special Holiday Screening: Boy and the World

Over the New Year's holiday next month, the Detroit Institute of Arts Detroit Film Theater will be closing the year on an animated note with a special holiday screening of the Brazilian animated feature film: 'Boy and the World'. This film promises to be an audio-visual feast as it's bereft of dialogue but filled with music from the Brazilian Samba and Hip Hop scene.

The screening schedule is:

Tuesday, December 29, 2015: at 3:00 PM
Tuesday, December 29, 2015: at 7:00 PM
Wednesday, December 30, 2015: at 3:00 PM
Wednesday, December 30, 2015: at 7:00 PM
Thursday, December 31, 2015: at 3:00 PM

And the link to the DFT's page where you can buy tickets is right here.

Up until recently, when they shut the festival down, the only way you could see films like 'Boy and the World' was to make the three hour trek into Canada to the Waterloo Festival for Animated Cinema. So be sure to take some time to support local theaters like the DIA's DFT that are bringing us animation. Ticket sales are how they know that there's a demand for anime and that they should bring us more! :)
