BOY

DIRECTOR: Taika Waititi - NEW ZEALAND

Lightly blending quirky comedy and gentle naturalism, Waititi’s heart-tugging story explores the elusive moment when a boy starts to make the choices that determine the man he will become. Inspired by Waititi’s Oscar-nominated short, Two Cars, One Night (PIFF 31), this coming-of-age tale is set in 1984. “Michael Jackson is king—even in Waihau Bay, New Zealand.

Seen through the child’s eyes, the father—a wild-honey collector living in an isolated mountain region—is an adored presence who helps unlock the secrets of the forest. Yusuf’s dreamy, interior world is threatened by the reality of school (he suddenly develops a stutter) and his father’s dangerous work.
