High school remains a fascinating subject for filmmakers, because it’s time of immense change. Personally and emotionally, those years are arguably the most important rite of passage into adulthood, and at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival, director Jenny Gage turns her lens on a group of captivating youths during the most crucial time of their life.
“All This Panic” was shot over a three-year period, and uniquely focuses on young women, taking a look at the exhilarating, candid, painful and exciting moments in a teen’s life. “They want to see us, but they don’t want to hear us,” says one of the film’s subjects, but “All This Panic” gives them a voice.
The documentary will have its first screening at Tribeca today at 5:45 PM at Regal Cinemas Battery Park. Check out the exclusive posters below.
