The Exploding Boy
Country of Origin: USA
Alex Silver dreams of becoming the next Jim Henson. Unfortunately, his life is no happy puppet show. His dad is overbearing, his school is oppressive, and even people in the neighborhood seem out to get him. But everything changes when he meets a charismatic transfer student.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR
Monty Wolfe has quickly established himself as the king of twee queer cinema. With 3 award-winning narrative shorts to his credit and now a feature length film, he has firmly established that quality queer cinema can be as delightfully cringe as straight cinema. He and film partner Ian Southworth use the moody Pacific Northwest as the backdrop for their wholesomely yet honest LGBTQ collaborations.
