Film of 2013 directed by Matt Wolf based on the book Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture, 1875-1945 de Jon Savage. Teenagers did not always exist. In this living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and voices lifted from early 20th Century diary entries, a struggle erupts between adults and adolescents to define a new idea of youth. The film gives a voice to four young people of different eras and countries, and uses their stories to capture the teenage spirit of the time and the ‘pre-history’ of youth: from party-addict flappers and swingers, to the Hitler youth.
