ON YOUTH – Coming of age in divers realities

Four films and four different ways to deal with the most confusing part of our lives: growing up. In Nyo Vweta Nafta the story of young men in Mozambique confronts the Western consumer world and challenges us to ask, what it means to grow up in a society shaped by selfishness and materialism. The complete opposite unfolds in Becoming who I was, a touching spiritual journey through the end of childhood, far from the cities in the remote highlands of Tibet. Boli Bana, in turn, approaches adult initiation in Burkina Faso among the Fulani as a life-cycle and mystical ritual. Finally, in The 20th Circuit Suspects members of a youth gang are faced with the immediate harshness of growing up in Tehran.
