a world without girls

This could have been the set-up of a movie about a gang of young bad boys, wishing for a world without girls (to quote one of them).
This was actually an everyday scene of brothers and friends, aged 4 to 10, of Dutch Spanish and Dutch Chilean nationalities, that I enjoyed shooting this afternoon: the scene of 4 boys chasing and fighting each other with big wooden sticks, by a falling giant tree in Vondelpark.

Have you also noticed that they were all dressed up in blue under the mud?
Pink for girls, blue for boys.
