Big Boy

Big Boy is Shireen Seno’s first feature film. Shot on Super 8 film, it tells the story of Julio and the business venture initiated by his parents. Julio’s parents wish him to become an ideal man according to their standards: to be tall like an American. Everything seems to work out fine, until one day Julio stops growing. Big Boy chronicles the growth of a family, the myths of progress that consume them, and the inherent violence in war, colonisation and coming into being.
