Teenage

As a sucker for coming of age films, a new documentary produced by actor Jason Schwartzman about the dawn of youth culture has caught my eye. At one time, the idea of teenagers didn't exist, but they are now a coveted demographic and audience as kids grow into adults and are easily influenced and building their tastes. The documentary Teenage focuses on the rise of these young people and their culture during the late 19th century and early 20th century by way of archival footage from history. Complete with voiceovers from Jena Malone and Ben Whishaw, this adaptation of Jon Savage's novel looks pretty interesting.

Here's the first trailer for Matt Wolf's documentary Teenage, originally from Yahoo:

Once, “teenagers” didn’t exist. But then, they were invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn’t matter – this was a new idea of how people come of age. They were all “teenagers.” Matt Wolf directs the documentary Teenage based on Jon Savage's novel of the same name and it arrives in limited theaters this spring on March 14th.
