Boys is back in town for a second edition of films redefining how boys can feel, think, and be. After he’s pressured to graffiti a wall, the boy in Granbad reveals his feelings—and his dyslexia. In Xavier, a father is told his son isn’t like the others, but he knows his fledgling drummer boy will find his own beat. Meanwhile, life in Curaçao may seem idyllic, but teens who feed themselves a diet of tough posturing and iguana stew make life challenging for a boy and his younger friend in Juni.
