O Menino e o Mundo (The Boy and the World, 2013)

"'O menino e o mundo' é o segundo longa–metragem de animação de Alê Abreu, paulistano de 42 anos, também diretor de 'Garoto Cósmico' e autor/ilustrados de livros infantis. Para espectadores habituados a animações cada vez mais sofisticadas, aceleradas e dependentes de efeitos especiais, em um primeiro momento o filme pode causar estranheza por sua linguagem simples e econômica, ou por sua cadência tranquila, na contracorrente do mercado. Além disso, ele é atravessado por uma melancolia incomum no gênero, fazendo do olhar de uma criança veículo para uma inquietante crítica social–e confrontando o espectador com o desafio de pensar sobre aquilo que vê, coisa incomum no gênero."

(Luciano Trigo, 19/01/14)

Sofrendo com a falta do pai, um menino deixa sua aldeia e descobre um mundo fantástico dominado por máquinas–bichos e estranhos seres alienígenas. Uma inusitada animação com várias técnicas artísticas que retrata as questões do mundo moderno através do olhar de uma criança.

Suffering from the absence of a father, a boy leaves his village and discovers a fantasy world dominated by machines, animals and strange aliens. An unusual animation with various artistic techniques that portrays the issues of the modern world through the eyes of a child.

Virtual girl called 'Sweetie' used to stop webcam child sex tourism

"To show how unrestrained child predators can act but also to show how easy it is to track them down the Dutch child rights organisation put itself in the shoes of a 10–year–old Filipino girl. With an innovative technology the virtual character Sweetie was created to be controlled by Terre des Hommes researchers. From a remote building in Amsterdam the researchers operated in public chat rooms. In a very short period, over 20,000 predators from around the world approached the virtual 10– year–old, asking for webcam sex performances. While the adults interacted with the virtual girl, the researchers gathered information about them through social media to uncover their identities. With this evidence Terre des Hommes Netherlands is pushing all governments to adopt proactive investigation policies, with a world wide petition, starting today."

(Hans Guyt, The Hague, 4 November 2013, Terre des Hommes)

One of A Kind: a childs guide to Radiotherapy

"Young cancer patients have told their stories in a cartoon that shows children and parents what it is like to have treatment. The six children, who received radiotherapy in Bristol, teamed up with the animation house Aardman for the production called One of a Kind! Their voices were recorded and given to the animated characters in the short film. It will be made available to hospitals all over the UK. The cartoon was the idea of Jancis Kinsman, advanced practice therapy radiographer at Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre."
(15 June 2010, BBC News)
