Poor Boy - Sisyphus in Amsterdam

Feature film, 2020, 90 min.

DEVELOPMENT / IN PRODUCTION. When film director BOY TALMA (53) returns to his home Town to shoot his new film - a variation in song and dance on the Sisyphus theme of pointlessness – he learns he has nine months left to live. He decides to keep his death sentence a secret, but the scenes he invents for his film increasingly coincide with events in his own life. Time goes by in a rollercoaster of unique encounters with people who, without Boy realizing, accompany him on his journey towards the end. POOR BOY is a film about the vitality of the imagination.
