Description

Kids today are active players in a sexually-charged popular culture, fuelled by media and personal technology. But at what cost? Whether it’s posting sexy photos and raunchy video on the net, ass-grabbing in the school hallway or spreading explicit gossip that shatters high school lives, harassment is commonplace, even acceptable. Kids today seem to be simply absorbing the bombardment of sexually explicit language, images and behaviours into their social scripts. Even those who recognize the consequences feel powerless to stop it. Combining documentary verite and self-directed dramatic films, three diverse groups of Toronto teens have an unprecedented opportunity to examine their provocative, fast-paced and hyper-sexualized social world more carefully and thoughtfully. Perhaps most revealing is how the kids in each group challenge each other’s assumptions, grapple with contradictions and ultimately change their perspectives. In an unprecedented journey through computer screens, inside all-ages clubs, with candid personal diaries and in their own short dramatic films about sexual pressures, It’s a Teen’s World exposes what it’s like for today’s teens to navigate a tangled web of sex, lies and power trips. Wired for Sex, Lies and Powertrips: It’s a Teen’s World is the thematic sequel to director/producer Lynn Glazier’s acclaimed and influential documentary film It’s a Girl’s World: how girls use their social power to hurt each other.
