Festival - Childrens Film Festival Seattle 2019: Features
(Portuguese with English subtitles) Washington State premiere!
This film, with a distinctive painterly style, follows the story of a shy 10-year-old boy named Tito who lives in a world where fear is crippling people, making them sick and transforming them. Tito realizes, based on his missing fathers past research, that there may be a way to use the local pigeon population and their songs to create a cure for the disease. As he tries to find a cure, he also begins the search for his father.
Content advisory: This uplifting film with some dark themes is suitable for older kids with adventurous tastes. This is a film about the debilitating way that fear affects people, so fearlessness in watching is helpful! There are depictions of life in near-future, dangerous looking, chaos-filled city, where an epidemic turns people into stones. Not spoiling anything to alert you: there is a happy ending.
