The Dynamists is a short artist film that involves twelve disruptive teenage boys and the Belgium poet and musician Angelo Perotti. Alluding to the coming of age movie genre, with its 'rites of passage' the video attempts to capture the transitional instability of adolescence and proposes disruption and conflict as an essential part to growth.
