Matt Wolf’s new film TEENAGE can only be described as a “living collage” of diary entries, archival footage, and filmed portraits of real teenagers from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th America. The film follows teens, (before we even knew what teens were) from England to Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs — and in an incredibly informative and entertaining way!
The film was inspired by Jon Savage‘s book, is scored by Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound), and is voiced by actors Jenna Malone (Donnie Darko) and Ben Whishaw (Cloud Atlas, Skyfall) among others.
Teenage opens at the Landmark Sunshine in New York City today, but check out their website for other showtimes across North America and the rest of the planet. We highly recommend checking this one out!

!! OMG, free documentary: Matt Wolf’s “I Remember” on writer/artist Joe Brainard !!

Screen Shot 2013-09-30 at 11.28.38 AM.png
Last year, New York-based filmmaker Matt Wolf made a beautiful documentary about American artist, and New York School writer, Joe Brainard.
I REMEMBER‘ is based on Brainard’s memoirs and you can stream it for free this week over on Mousse Magazine’s VDROME. (There’s also an interview with Matt about the film.) Some more info from VDROME:

I Remember is a kind of biography of the New York School writer and artist Joe Brainard, who died of Aids in 1994 at the age of 53. I say kind of because it’s also a visualization or vivification of his wonderful book I Remember, which is in itself a difficult to categorize work – an autobiography, let’s say, by way of intensely sensual fragments of memory.
Using found footage and archival audio and visual materials to construct his narrative Matt Wolf creates a memento-like reenactment of Joe Brainard’s poem “I Remember”. Composed by an ongoing flux of recollections and images, the film maintains the fast cadency of the Brainard’s text while weaving a touching biographical account of the American artist and writer.
