Smells Like Teen Spirit

Description

Like flowers, youth in bloom moves from the safety of the bud to the precarious exposure of the natural world. Adolescence is, however, anything but a carefree and joyous time. Chadi, first in his class, tries at all costs to attract the attention of pretty Raya. Young kids in Temiscamingue are torn about how their future should look like. For Jerome the end of school does not represent so much a new beginning, but the end of a long friendship. Alex is torn between how people perceive him and how he perceives himself. This session reveals adolescence, this time of becoming, in all its torment and embarrassment. Can you stand the cringe?
