Lost Bois (2024) Tribeca 2024

Devyn Galindo's  experimental documentary is an afternoon and evening with Samp, Gian and Moose, three transmasc New York City natives

This three minute and twenty second film is simply not long enough. I mean that in both a good way and a bad way. It's bad because there isn't enough here for the film to amount to much. We get two moments in in time- in a bed room and on a roof top. It's such a short time that if we blink things are over and we don't have any sense  of much of anything.

Watching the film blind (I do not really look at how long shorts are nor do I read anything about them until after they are done) I thought I was sent the films trailer.

The problem is that if you just see the film with out explanation it just hangs there-and then it ends.

On the other hand there is enough here that director Galindo wanted to expand this into either a longer short or a feature this would go a long way to proving the film will work. I for one want to see more with Samp Gian and Moose. We see and hear enough that we can tell there  more to hear and see. I would love to see more given the chance.

And I would like to see what Galindo does next.

Reservations aside, this is worth a look.
