International Shorts 3: Teen Spirit

  • 90 mins

An eclectic programme of shorts observing young, charismatic characters exploring their way into adulthood.

A sexual awakening in the countryside, a longed-for escape to far away countries, a shocking birthday party, a day in a facility for abused teenagers, a fateful encounter with a Manga-loving girl... Seductive, vengeful, provocative, frustrated or simply plain dangerous, the young protagonists of these shorts from
Ireland, New Zealand, Taiwan, the US and Austria are caught in their own unique, fascinating coming of age journeys.
