An intimate look at the interior lives of a group of teenage girls as they come of age in Brooklyn. A potent mix of vivid portraiture and vérité, we follow the girls as they navigate the ephemeral and fleeting transition between childhood and adulthood.
And these are city kids, raised in the cultural capital of the world, where everything moves fast. These girls appear savvy and sophisticated - city kids raised in the cultural capital of the world - 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. Their world is full of secrets and sex, parties and drugs, 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.
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.
