BFI Film Festival highlights: Being 17 trailer

BFI Film Festival highlights: Being 17 trailer by André Téchiné

Young people on their quest for sexual identity are central characters of André Téchiné‘s drama – a story of classmates Damien and Thomas. Loosely based on the TV film New Wave by Gaël More, the story takes place over a year, with each school term launching a new chapter. As we gradually discover the underlying reasons for boys’ enmity, we can also rejoice the visual side of the film, set against the picturesque backdrop of The Pyrenees.

Purple will highlight some of the best films showing at this years BFI Film Festival in London to celebrate it’s 60th Anniversary. Click here to see more
