All This Panic – Nov. 6

On Sunday, November 6th, The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of All This Panic, a beautifully shot, intimate look at the interior lives of seven teenage girls as they come of age in Brooklyn.

Shot over a three-year period in a lush and cinematic style, All This Panic is a meditation on the mysterious, often painful, yet ultimately exhilarating period of a teen’s life as they transition between childhood and adulthood.

In a world where, as one teen remarks, ‘they want to see us, but they don’t want to hear us’, this film is comprised entirely of young women speaking to their own experiences. City kids, raised in the cultural capital of the world, where everything moves fast, these girls appear savvy and sophisticated, but their Brooklyn attitudes can’t obliterate the baseline insecurities, fears and awkwardness shared by teens across the globe.

Like all teens, they’re a fascinating hybrid species made up of contradictory elements and facing the whole gamut of challenges. Their world is full of secrets and sexuality, parties and clandestine drinking, and shifting bonds with family and friends. There’s no map for the road ahead and life-altering decisions are made in the blink of an eye. With incredible access and intimate cinematography, All This Panic deftly and eloquently explores the teen experience.

All This Panic world-premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival to excellent reviews and was named one of the best films at the festival by Time Out New York and The Village Voice.

“Astonishing…a remarkably intimate portrait of female youth.” The Guardian

“The ascent (or is it descent?) into adulthood is beautifully captured in the tender documentary All This Panic…evocative…intimate…This is an optimistic picture, despite the urgent, up-and-down nature of this stage of a girl’s life.” Screendaily

“A compelling portrait of late adolescence that expands well beyond the boundaries of its borough or its characters… captures Brooklyn adolescence with visceral, emotional cinematography and a keen eye.” Vanity Fair
