"A small but quite lovely and wonderful film, gorgeous to look at, which tackles an age-old subject with radiant freshness"  David Noh - Film Journal International

Pim lives in a small town on the Belgian coast, together with his single mother Yvette, a local accordion starlet. It’s an ordinary existence which Pim brightens up by dreaming of princesses, beauty queens and handsome Gino, the boy next door.  But when hunky traveller Zoltan blows through town, Pim’s life takes an exciting and unexpected turn.

NORTH SEA TEXAS is the feature film debut from cult director Bavo Defurne, whose short films, love letters to the male form and soaked with lush visuals, have garnered fans from across the globe - drawing comparisons to Pierre et Gilles, Herbert List, Dreyer and Eisenstein. Official trailer
