NEW SHORTS: We'll Never Be Those Kids Again

18:30 Fri 17 Jan 2020

Regent Street Cinema

Caught in the messy throes of adolescence, these shorts retread the turblent and enduringly cinematic path from teendom to adulthood.

From lessons learned and embarrassments endured to the joy of self-discovery, coming-of-age is never easy - wherever in the world you may be. Dark family secrets are reconciled in rural Canada, a young girl finds herself trapped in the cocaine business in Iran, and two girls overcome cultural differences in favour of friendship back home in the UK.

Featuring work from BAFTA nominee Charlotte Regan (Standby). Programmed by Philip Ilson. 86’

This programme contains racist and homophobic language and depictions of abuse.
