The Boyz of Summer - Antonio DiFonzo (Elizabeth, New Jersey)
As the summer unfolds, in this independent feature film that leads from the gritty city streets of Elizabeth to the Jersey Shore, childhood friends, Rocco, Drew, and Sal re-unite. Having returned home for the summer, Rocco, an art student, finds that his visions are suddenly amplified, as his dreams compel him to draw what he is seeing and feeling. Meanwhile, the bonds of friendship are tested, as the three young men struggle with the limits of their upbringing and challenges at home. Underscoring their story is a great sound-track that combines indie rock with orchestral compositions. 2012; 109 min With an introduction and Q+A session by director Antonio DiFonzo!
