Los Angeles, CA – August 20, 2019 – Embark on an adventure of a lifetime with ‘THE STONE BOY’ on Amazon Prime video today: https://amzn.to/2ZbWDbW.
From directors Pablo Aldrete, Miguel Bonilla, Miguel Angel Uriegas and Jaime Romandia, THE STONE BOY (aka La incredible historia del Nińo de Piedra) follows Marina and her cousins on the adventurous and magical journey through the vibrant Land of Senses, where they stumble upon “The Stone Boy” – a boy who has turned as cold as stone. THE STONE BOY was awarded the Silver Ariel for ‘Best Feature Length Animated Film’ (Mejor Largometraje de Animación) at Mexico’s Ariel Awards for its lively animation and family-fun messages.
THE STONE BOY “teaches a lesson about family unit, friendship and positive attitude towards life in general. As a metaphor to portray the difficulty of getting into teenage years but being able to find a way to enjoy,” wrote BRWC.
The film’s metaphor extends further than colorful animation, as People recently reported of 14-year-old Colorado-native, Jaiden Rogers, who has spent the last six years battling the extremely rare disease, stiff skin syndrome, which causes his entire body to thicken and harden, like stone. First diagnosed with stiff skin syndrome in January 2013, which has spread throughout his entire body, Rogers has suffered unbearable joint and muscle pain.
Racing against the little time he has left, Rogers’ family has found a possible cure – but it is only provided in Europe. People cited, “According to Dr. Margarita Saenz, a clinical geneticist at Children’s Hospital Colorado who treats Jaiden, the first case of the syndrome was reported in 1971. Since then, only a few dozen people around the world have been diagnosed.”
Filled with bright and exciting animation, THE STONE BOY is a fresh and joyous look into the values of love, appreciation, and most importantly, friendship.
