$5 General / Free for UWM students and UWM cinema members

Excerpt from facebook event:

When THE WILD BOYS was uncorked in the States at the acclaimed Platinum series, the genre-defining experimental showcase at Outfest, Los Angeles’ LGBT film festival, the curators wrote:

"Mandico’s genre- and gender-bending surrealist work zigzags through a perverse, hyper-stylized world of transgressions. In this nightmarish adventure, well-bred teenage boys, played by women, commit a heinous crime and are sent to sea with the barbaric Captain. Landing on a magical island with bizarre animals and lascivious plants, the teens metamorphose. Outrageous vulgarity blends with refinement as machismo’s cruelty and the glory of sexual freedom are exposed in this phantasmagorical visual feast and erotic fantasia.”
