Official Selection to the Slamdance Film Festival 2008
A coming of age story about the best times of our life; a time where the music, the fashion, and the art dictate your youth into complacency.
On the day Lando turns twenty-one, all he wants is to hang out with his co-workers, bickering couple Lars and Friday; see his girlfriend Amy; then go to a party with his friends Aces, Trent and Yardbirds. Facing pressure from his stepfather, Lando discovers throughout the day that youth is as cherished as it is fleeting.
The end of innocence and the blossoming of experience go hand and hand whenever accountability jades us into adulthood. Glory Boy Days proves that the deepest definition of youth is life untouched by tragedy.
“This is one of those heartfelt films that plays like music… it’s got an assured soulful rhythm that the viewer can lean back into, uncovering its pleasures as it unfolds. With a sensitive eye for the intimate, authentic moments of relationships, parties, and Hip Hop culture, the filmmakers have crafted a cinematic album that meanders gracefully from chill-out grooves to party beats to introspective ballads.”
