28 April – 4 May, 2017
Preceded by DepicT! Award-winning film Run Boy (Philipines 2016, 1m44s) by director Meg Bagadion.
Ned is a gawky, artistic 16-year-old who is failing to settle into his new boarding school where rugby is virtually a religion. He guards himself from the loneliness, ridicule and constant insinuations about his sexuality with literature and music. Everything changes with the dual arrival of new roommate Connor, a star rugby player, and inspirational English teacher Dan Sherry. Ned and Connor bond over a shared passion for music and an unlikely friendship blossoms; one that faces unbearable pressures from a school grimly attached to its macho values.
