Sounds Like Teen Spirit Trailer


Kids always make great subjects for a documentary, not only because of the potential for exploring the parent-child relationship, but also because they wear their emotions on their sleeves and, well, let’s face it… kids say the darndest things! (For some great examples of cool docs about kids, check out Jay’s previous list of Five Films about Kids.) Seeing kids and teenagers in competitions can make for an even more compelling watch, which is why I’m excited about Jamie Jay Johnson’s Sounds Like Teen Spirit.

The movie follows four kids from ages 10 to 15 as they take part in the Junior Eurovision Songwriting Contest. It’s like Spellbound meets Rock School, but with an international flavour. Clearly the many different personalities and backgrounds come into play here, but like all competition documentaries, I can only hope it culminates in a tense nail-biting finale. The movie is currently playing in select theatres in the U.K., but unfortunately there no word on a North American release as of yet. After seeing the trailer, I now regret missing it at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Check out the trailer for Sounds Like Teen Spirit below, and visit the official website for more info.
