Youth 13+: Unfiltered Reality
Youth 13+: Unfiltered Reality
Description
Four wide-ranging, beautiful films: Sister of Mine, Headprickles, The Sketch and Nyanga. A selection that takes teens seriously and challenges by showing beautiful, funny, painful and unfiltered reality. A teenage girl who discusses her drug addiction with her parents; an absurd animation about people doing weird and unnecessary stuff; a nude model in drawing class who helps the director find a new home; and a young boy who goes hunting and is suddenly caught in a net and enslaved. A selection not only meant for teens, but also intriguing for adults.
Composition
Sister of Mine

Sister of Mine

Age section 13+ year. The young filmmaker Mariusz Rusiński films his desperate parents and his 17-year-old drug-addicted sister Zuzia. How did it come to this? And what is his role in the messed-up family dynamic?
Headprickles

Headprickles

Age section 13+ year. A series of absurd, animated vignettes form a colorful audiovisual maze of fantasy, obsession, frustration, fear, delusion and wonder—everything that sometimes makes your head prickle.
The Sketch

The Sketch

Age section 13+ year. Tomas Cali moves to Paris, where he feels alone and misunderstood. In his drawing class he meets Linda Demorrir, a nude model, also from another country and, like him, transgender. As he draws her, he also sketches his new reality.
Nyanga

Nyanga

Age section 13+ year. How do you cope with the inhumanities of a life in slavery? This beautiful handmade animation translates the history of 12 million people into the story of Nyanga, a boy who has been kidnapped to America and wants to go home. An ode to resistance.
