New Roads High School in Santa Monica: Jaya doesn't want to dress differently to catch the boys' attention, and her best friend Clementine simply can't understand why. Jayden is frustrated by his friends, who view women as objects, and Ava is possibly in a relationship with the older Silas, whose friends berate him for it. Da shot this engaging film with his students (and their iPhones) during school breaks. TEENAGE EMOTIONS is a raw and extremely intimate film about the complex inner life of a high school - one of the most beautiful recent independent films about (and with) teenagers. (hb)
