Abstract

The Teenage Wildlife Videotheque surveys the rich source of inspiration film and video artists’ have found within the subject of youth. The short films featured in this self-selection videotheque, range from tales of loneliness and confusion, angst, excess, bad behaviour and empowerment to poetic portraits of how some teenagers like to spend their time and lyrical re-workings of existing footage. The works included span from the 1950s when the term ‘teen’ first became widely used, to the present day. Films by Karel Reisz, Lynne Ramsey, Ridley Scott, Asif Kapadia and Bill Douglas are included alongside artists’ film and video by Martin Arnold, Carol Morley, Andrew Kötting and Cordelia Swann, amongst others. The videotheque has been curated by artist/film-maker, Esther Johnson. Teenage Wildlife Project with Young People: Students from three Sheffield schools – Parkwood High, Abbeydale Grange and Tapton – worked with Esther Johnson to give reviews, both written and on-camera, of a selection of films and videos from the videothéque.
