Dir. Matt Wolf, 80 mins, USA/Germany, 2013
Teenagers didn’t always exist, they were invented. From the industrial revolution through to the cultural and political turmoil of the first half of the 20th century, the chasm between childhood and adulthood grew. Using archival footage and diary entries read by the Ben Whishaw, Jena Malone and others, Teenage tells the unique story of how we come of age. Executive produced by Jason Schwartzman and featuring a contemporary score by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter/Atlas Sound).
Teenage is screening on Saturday, June 21st at 6:30pm at The Globe Cinema.
