Teenage Lockdown Tales
The lives of high school seniors from the outskirts of Paris were turned upside down when the lockdown was announced. How can you survive as a teen if you are deprived of school, sports, friends and partying? How can you establish autonomy when you can’t escape your parents? The filmmakers asked these teens to record their experiences on their phones, resulting in a light, dynamic and thought-provoking coming-of-age film.
