Movie Night – Adolescents 11/30/22

Five years in the making, this documentary follows teenagers Emma and Anaïs from the age of 13 to 18 and charts their life in Brive-la-Gaillarde in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
Despite being best friends, and largely inseparable, the pair have very different lives and come from markedly different social backgrounds, with Emma being from a more affluent family, full of drive and ambition, and Anaïs, from a poorer background, struggling at times with the challenges the world throws at her.
It was filmed for 24 days each year, resulting in an astonishing 500 hours of footage, before being edited down to 2h16m. Beautifully filmed, it explores the difficulties of teenage years and the importance of education as the key to the girls’ future lives.
