Description

“In this world, there is so much anger. Our lives are in danger. We are all living in fears. We’ve got to stop the tears.” We may be living in challenging times, but today’s teen filmmakers are using film purposefully—and creatively—to tell stories that both confront and counteract the darkness. In this peer-reviewed collection of youth-made shorts, no genre is left unturned, from sci-fi to superheroes, serial-killer comedy to animated adventure: fortissimo (Lilith Jörg, Germany 2019, 2 min), The Cold Season (Josiah Stendel, US 2019, 10 min), Painting the Town: The Street Art of Detroit (William Higbie, US 2018, 10 min), BaBam (Nick Sherman, US 2019, 6 min), Pliashka (Yegor Bondarenko, Ukraine 2017, 4 min), Passenger (Cal Thacher, US 2019, 8 min), Fangs for the Memories (Mason Roech, US 2019, 5 min), The Burdens They Carry (Alyssa Andrews, US 2019, 12 min), Diluted Fear (Jared Goudsmit, US 2017, 5 min), Acceptance!!!! (Ella Warner, US 2017, 3 min), Hold the Sun in Your Hands: The Erika Jacoby Story (Talia Abel, Xenia Bernal, Ian Kim, Alejandro Moses, Hank Schoen, India Spencer, Eva Suissa & Michael Zambrano, US 2018, 9 min), Margot (Logan Polish, US 2019, 12 min), Outside (Emma Evanson & Patricia Baena, US 2019, 6 min). Age 12+
