Most parents love and care for their children, but it is easy to forget how difficult the transition from childhood to adulthood can be. Alex, Gabi and Oki are three teenagers making their way through life in the city. Like any other teenagers, they like to push the boundaries that their parents and society have forced upon them, by drinking, fighting and spraying graffiti … They are social misfits becoming increasingly estranged from their parents, teachers and, even from themselves. The Wild Ones continues the Spanish neorealist movement that Carlos Saura led in the 70s and 80s, exploring life in a climate of high unemployment and criminality. It won the prestigious award for Best Film at this year’s Málaga Film Festival.
