Boy (15)

Tuesday 6th March 2018 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm, Palmer Building

Boy occupies a world of dreams full of heroes, magic and Michael Jackson. Most of all he fantasises about his father, Alamein, whom he sees as a heroic adventurer. In reality his father is an inept criminal who returns home after serving a prison sentence. Boy is forced to confront the reality of the man he idolised. This is a film of offbeat charm, powerfully drawing in the viewer.
