Our US-American co-production “Teenage”, based on a groundbreaking book “Teenage” (Campus Verlag) by the music and youth culture author Jon Savage will be broadcast on Franco-German television (arte) on June 29 at 9:35 pm. Director Matt Wolf created an unconventional historical documentary about the invention of the teenager, told in a wild pop-collage made of archive, recreations and music.
“Passing before the screen like a dream, enhanced by the ambient swirl of Bradford Cox’s original soundtrack, the film stitches together an astounding collection of archival materials, supplemented by period reenactments…” Steve Dollar, The Wall Street Journal
“An entrancing collage that puts the voice of youth at the center of a narrative in which the broad strokes of history tend to overlook them.” Joel Arnold, National Public Radio
