Coming of Age, Documentary
English / German
The birth of youth culture is explored in this energetic and inventively constructed documentary that presents a fascinating teenage view of the past. A visual and aural collage based on a groundbreaking book, the film blends rare archival footage, re-enactments and zesty narration to paint a vivid portrait of adolescent life in England, America, and Germany during the historically tumultuous first half of the 20th century. Focussing on the real experiences of a party-crazed Flapper, a rebellious German Swing Kid, a black Boy Scout and an idealistic Hitler Youth member, director Matt Wolf atmospherically captures the age, while revealing how young people continually struggled to define themselves throughout a period when the term ‘teenager’ didn’t even exist.
