Teenage

Teenagers didn't always exist. At the turn of the century, child labor was ending, 'adolescence' was emerging, and a struggle erupted between adults and youth. Would the young be controlled and regimented, or could they be free? Inspired by punk author Jon Savage's book, this film gives voice to emblematic teenagers from the first half of the 20th century: Brenda, a self-destructive Bright Young Thing; Melita, an idealistic Hitler Youth; Tommi, a rebellious German Swing Kid; and Warren, a black Boy Scout. Teenage is a punk approach to history. Thanks to the use of subjective narration and living collage of footage, voices and rhythms, it recreates the turbulent feeling of teenage rebellion
