THE WILD BOYS (Les Garçons Sauvages)
Bertrand Mandico 2018 France 110′

At the beginning of the 20th century on the island of La Réunion, five adolescents of good family, enamored with the occult, commit a savage crime. A Dutch Captain takes them in charge for a repressive cruise on a haunted, dilapidated sailboat. Exhausted by the methods of the Captain, the five boys prepare to mutiny. Their port of call is a supernatural island with luxuriant vegetation and bewitching powers.

Gorgeously shot with 16mm, mixing black/white and color, this poetic, avant-garde film invites us to join a sailing trip into deep and magic waters. Scores of filmic and literary references accompany the androgynous boys through this surreal and cinematic metamorphosis by Bertrand Mandico.


The film LES GARÇONS SAUVAGES contains images of sexual violence.
