Kill the Boy

Mata al Niño

ALT | International Shorts

Everything is a competition when two teens full of irresponsible bravado - a deadly combination - trail-bike into the woods to shoot off a rifle. This dramatic life lesson is very well made with solid performances that really captures their rivalry, with the older boy dishing out advice on picking up girls and exerting his elder position. It isn’t long before their reckless actions have dire consequences and their relationship takes a surprising turn.

"This short film is a statement of the responsibility we must assume about our role with nature and ourselves. The only thing that will make us an adult civilization is to accept responsibility for our actions with everything that surrounds us. We need to kill the boy to grow up." - Juan Pablo Villavicencio Borges
