In 1994, ten filmmakers contributed hour-long autobiographical films about their adolescence to the French television anthology Tous les garçons et les filles de leur âge (All the Boys and Girls of Their Age), including now-renowned names like Claire Denis, Olivier Assayas, Chantal Akerman and André Téchiné. The latter’s Wild Reeds was subsequently expanded to feature length and remains a queer coming-of-age classic, centring on the difficult passage into adulthood experienced by four friends in the southwest of France over the summer in 1962 (as the Algerian war looms offscreen, affecting each of them.) Starring Élodie Bouchez, Gaël Morel, Stéphane Rideau, Frédéric Gorny and Jacques Nolot.
