SeasonOutburst Queer Arts Festival

With nods to Jean Genet and The 400 Blows, The Lost Boys offers a fresh, tender and powerful take on youthful gay romance.

Arab teenager Joe is about to be released from a youth detention centre. If the judge approves his discharge, he’ll be allowed to live on his own. But when a new detainee, William, arrives in his facility, Joe starts to question his desire for freedom.

Featuring graceful performances from Khalil Gharbia and Julien de Saint Jean as the unexpectedly smitten young lovers, Zeno Graton’s debut feature goes beyond the established tropes of prison dramas to bring us a deeply humane portrayal of the freedom and vulnerability that comes with intimacy.

This screening is taking place on the 8th European Arthouse Cinema Day, celebrating the diversity of European cinema around the world.

Shared in-the-dark pleasures, Outburst brings you the very best in new queer cinema from around the world in partnership with QFT. Visit outburstarts.com for full details of the festival programme, taking place 9 - 18 November.
