The Wild Boys (Bertrand Mandico)

When: Thu., Feb. 13, 6:30-10 p.m. 2020

One of the boldest aesthetic statements in recent French cinema, The Wild Boys is a gender-bending, influence-scrambling adventure tale about five teenage miscreants sent on a boat journey with a mysterious Dutch captain who has promised to bring them back to their parents as obedient boys—or not at all. Shot on gorgeous 35 mm black and white film with occasional bursts of dazzling color, it is a potent reminder that the radical power of art begins in the formal gesture. The film will be introduced by Theo Mantion (French) and William Dwyer (Class of ‘20) will lead a post-screening discussion.

Price: Free and open to the public.
