Are You a Man

Dali si Maž

64th TIFF: Greek Premiere

This surprising exercise of coming-of-age cinema, and poignant commentary on masculinity as a social construction, starts with the experiment of a man, who sends a boy on a quest into the scary night. The boy manages to conquer his fears but back at home, a painful twist hurts beyond anything he went through the night.
