1 min read

Paris-based company Indie Sales has acquired “The Lost Boys,” the feature debut of Belgian filmmaker Geno Gratton, which will play at the Berlin Film Festival in the Generations category.

Produced with support from the Cinefondation at Cannes, “The Lost Boys” headlines Khalil Gharbia, alongside newcomer Julien de Saint-Jean, the promising young actor from Francois Ozon’s “Peter von Kant.”

The film is set in contemporary Belgium and follows Joe, a teenager, who is about to be released from a youth detention center. But when a new inmate arrives at his facility, Joe begins to question his desire for freedom and lives on his own.

Produced by Belgium’s Tarantula, “The Lost Boys” is produced by France’s Silex Films and Belgium’s Menuetto Films. The movie will be released in the spring by O’Brother in Belgium and Rezo in France.

“Jeno Gratton impresses with this first film where teenagers are locked up in a detention center and experience a love story that will challenge their notions of freedom,” said Constance Paubel, sales executive at Indie Sales.

The current slate of indie sales includes Nomi Lvovsky’s musical drama ‘The Great Magic’ and Imad Alebrahim Dehkordi’s critically acclaimed Iranian debut “A Tale of Shemrun,” which premiered in San Sebastian and won the top prize in Marrakech.
