The Wild Boys

In the presence of Elina Löwensohn
Swiss Première

In the early days of the 20th century, in Réunion, five boys from a good families commit an atrocious crime. They are taken in change by a strict captain who sets them on a punitive journey..."The Wild Boys" is a Jules Verne-like adventure perverted by feverish juvenile obsessions of William S.Burroughs, inoculated by the creative extravagance of Bertrand Mandico. Multi-awarded at LUFF for his short films, the filmmaker achieves his first sumptuous feature whose visual frenzy, deploying an organic and sensual poetry, will leave you stunned.
