REALLY SWEET SOUNDING PROJECT: Filmmaker Matt Wolf is directing a movie based on punk author Jon Savage’s Teenage, which “reveals the pre-history of modern teenagers” by looking across various cultures and histories, “from the early 20th century — from party-crazed Flappers and hipster Swing Kids to brainwashed Nazi Youth and frenzied Sub-Debs.”
In the lead-up to the film, Wolf has been posting really interesting photo archives of teens in different times and contexts, from teenage prostitutes in Thailand to Jewish teens in Germany in the early ’60s, to youth soldiers of El Salvador’s FMLN, to Oaxaca teens of the ’90s, to US college students in the late 1800s.
Each archive serves as a kind of portal into different historical and societal contexts, different places and times you might not otherwise know about.
Looking forward to seeing this production come together in 2013.
