During the biggest filmfestival of The Netherlands, you get the chance to watch a premiere of one of the topfilms of this edition: Boyz in the Wood

International Film Festival Rotterdam and Erasmus University have been partners for a couple of years now, and you can benefit from this! With a special discount you can watch a film specially selected for Erasmus students & employees. 

About the film:

The hunt is on in this insane comedy about four potty guys, who begin to fear a duke with a gun during their hike through the Scottish Highlands. Stupid decisions, crazy plot twists, paranoid neighborhood police and a flashy editing complete the chaos.

When the three biggest losers at their school are chosen to compete for the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the boys – Dean, Duncan and DJ Beatroot (not his real name really) – have to make their way across the Scottish Highlands accompanied by the nerd Ian. A huge sign about missing children at the start of the trek bodes ill.

The hunt is opened in Boyz in the Wood. A duke watches through his binoculars while the clueless teens complain about fresh air and use their map to smoke really flammable hash. This initiates a bizarre game of cat and mouse, full of idiotic decisions and wacky plot twists. Lightning-fast editing and two paranoid local cops complete the chaos in Ninian Doff's directorial debut. Want to chuck in a message about the inter-generational gap? Why not!
