Australian filmmaker Nicholas Verso‘s first feature film, Boys In The Trees, has released its official trailer in anticipation for its national release on October 20.
Boys In The Trees “tells the story of two estranged childhood friends who reunite on Halloween 1997, and embark on a surreal journey through their memories, dreams and fears”, and will compete at the Venice Film Festival in August, which Verso states “surpasses our highest expectations for the film.”
Verso, who is the writer and director of Boys In The Trees, was the recipient of the AACTA Award for Best Short Film for The Last Time I Saw Richard in 2014, and says his feature film debut “celebrates the nostalgia and fun of growing up in Australian suburbia in the 90’s”.
The film is being released under Mushroom Pictures, the studio behind Australian successes including Chopper and Wolf Creek.
Boys In The Trees releases October 20th. Learn more at the film’s official website.
