Russian Film Symposium 2021: Spice Boyz
This panel will include a screening and discussion of Spice Boyz (Спайс бойз, 2019), a provocative Belarusian grotesque that features a bachelor party turned into horror when the groom and his friends use drugs and become violent. The film bears a complex relation to reality since the story is based on a true tragic event that happened in 2014 in Gomel and involved a person with a disability. Spice Boyz’s eccentric tone and disturbing images may pose a challenge to some viewers.

This screening will be available worldwide during the duration of the panel.
