“TEENAGE” is the the brilliantly innovative new documentary from Matt Wolf (Wild Combination: A Portrait Of Arthur Russell). A living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits and voiceovers (provided by Jena Malone and Ben Whishaw, amongst others) lifted from early 20th century diary entries, “TEENAGE” is a hypnotic rumination of the genesis of youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th, set to a shimmering original score by Deerhunter & Atlas Sound frontman Bradford Cox. Adapted from Jon Savage’s bestselling 2007 book of the same name, produced by Cinereach (Beasts of the Southern Wild), and executive produced by Jason Schwartzman, the film premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, and will open in theaters nationwide beginning March 14th.
