Filmed over three years by first-time director Jenny Gage, this empathetic and incisive documentary follows a group of Brooklyn teenagers as they make the sometimes uneasy transition from late childhood to womanhood. Sweet, shy Lena has to fend for herself owing to a troubled family life, while her best friend, Ginger, becomes besotted with make-up, clothes and partying. The girls’ changes in character and physicality remind us how rapidly life can progress, often with awkward or unexpected consequences.
All This Panic, dir. Jenny Gage, USA 2016, 79 mins
