Film Synopsis: Young Solitude

Director: Claire Simon | Countries of production: France | Year: 2018 | Length: 100 min
Language: French with English subtitles | Age: 8+ years

“I know who I want to be but I don’t know who I will be.”

Set in a high school in a southern suburb of Paris, this intimate portrait of adolescence captures the hopes, tensions and doubts of a group of teenagers as they chat after (and sometimes during) class.

These reluctant protagonists, whom the director fully involved in the film’s development, gradually open up in front of veteran documentary filmmaker Claire Simon’s camera to discuss their backgrounds, their families, their ambitions…

Revealing deeply-held passions and, in some cases, challenging pasts, they all grapple with what makes them who they are. Loneliness quickly – and perhaps surprisingly – emerges as one of their greatest anxieties, lending a timeless quality to this ultra-contemporary snapshot of modern youth.
