XS Stress: Teens Take Control
Directed by Patricia Kearns - 2004
In this short film, three youths draw on their own experiences to provide
an essential guide to staying afloat while navigating the choppy waters of
adolescence. It's a time when youth undergo big changes and assume
new responsibilities, juggling school, family and friends. Throw in work,
dating, exams, racist remarks and extracurricular activities, and it's no
wonder teens get knocked off balance. Spoken word performer Kyra
Shaughnessy and a diverse chorus of young voices provide running
commentary, making XS Stress an insightful report from the teens of
today. For more information, visit films.nfb.ca/yac/.
Produced by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB).
