4.1.17 #SaturdayScreening: All This Panic
The effect of watching this week’s #saturdayscreening is heady to say the least. Jenny Gage’s All This Panic is youth in a bottle, capturing all of the beauty and uncertainty of a group of young women in Brooklyn as they come of age. The documentary’s rich camerawork has an ethereal quality that mimics how we all remember our youth: fast-paced and bright, though slightly blurry at the edges. Most importantly, this is a record of teenage experience as told by teenage girls. Their observations, equal turns innocent and wise beyond their years, are the real joy of the film.

"Raw and heartwarming. [All This Panic] makes us realize that, regardless of which generation we belong to, we all go through the same growing pains.” -Indiewire
