Focus on Bertrand

Ahead of the MUBI premiere of Bertrand Mandico’s wondrous first feature The Wild Boys, we provide two of Mandico’s preceding acclaimed short films. Boro in the Box pays tribute to the Polish filmmaker Walerian Borowczyk in the form of an elliptical paean to his singularly provocative cinema.

Focus on Bertrand

The 2nd short preceding Bertrand Mandico’s The Wild Boys is another succinct, phantasmagoric contraption of dreamlike rhythm’s and logic (or lack thereof!). Living Still Life revives and even queers the inspiration of Andrei Tarkovsky and his philosophy of “sculpting in time” to perfect effect.
