Synopsis

On a hunt for the Fountain of Youth, three teenagers in 1980’s Honduras buy drugs, harm nature and have magical encounters. Tons of landscape footage, a meditation on Mayan Archaeology and a heavy TV teen vibe highlight this impulse-buy spiritual adventure.

Our take

With festival gem L for Leisure, a unique 1990s youthful reverie, getting released in theaters on May 15, we’re collaborating with the filmmakers to show their previous short feature. It’s an indolent, deliciously sarcastic journey of white privilege through foreign jungles, shot on dazzling 16mm.
