Girls & Boys

Girls & Boys is a short 2015 Swedish film that depicts high school life in a matriarchy, "a world where girls are hunters and boys are the catch."

I had never heard of this film and only discovered it while Googling something else on a rainy day this past weekend.

When I viewed the trailer for the film on YouTube, I was floored. See for yourself.



Yes, the boys are the ones in long hair, makeup and high heels, while the girls are in trousers and short hair.

The film's "teaser" on YouTube made me want to see more.



I searched for more and found the film's Facebook page and one short clip from the film, but nowhere can I view or purchase the film. If anyone has a lead on where to buy or see the film, I would appreciate it.

    1. Caveat Emptor: This is NOT a link to Girls & Boys. Rather, it is The Two Ronnies' take on matriarchal life.

    2. Sorry should have said that but I was struck by the similarities of women ruling and men being forced to wear dresses.

  5. In the trailer it seemed to me the girls came across as boys before puberty due to their treble voices.

    The boys appear to wear codpieces, something that was common in the 15th and 16th centuries.

    1. It would appear to be their equivalent of a push up bra.

  6. I found this link, but it it’s either unavailable in my country or it’s been deleted. I’m desperate to find it...I must’ve watched the trailer twenty times!!

    2. I wrote them at the movie facebook page, they told me that we can contact the movie distribution organization distribution@filmcentrum.se, which usually distibutes it to schools. I couldnt get more information.

  7. I did notice that the film is only 30 minutes long.

    Maybe there is a place to purchase/view it through the Stockholm Film Festival but I learned all of my Swedish from The Muppets Show. Bork bork bork.
