BOYS is a 15 minute Swedish short directed by Isabella Carbonell and written by her and Babak Najafi. Young Markus (brilliant: Sebastian Hiort af Ornäs) is in an institution for young sex offenders – his crime is a terrible one, and with the help of his friend he can at least try to bury that part of him which made him do the unspeakable. The short film was shown at the Göteborg Film Festival – it is nicely made, great light and colours – but clearly draws very much of its power from Sebastian’s superb acting.
