“So honest and natural that it's difficult to guess where life ends and filmmaking begins.”
High school just got real. A raw, intimate look at the struggles of six teens on the verge of high school graduation in the small, gold rush town of Sonora, California, The Other Kids is a bold and original hybrid of fiction and non-fiction in which real teenagers collaborated with director Chris Brown to tell their own gripping and personal stories. Impending graduation into adulthood brings each of these 17-year-olds to the edge of an emotional precipice. When safety nets prove illusory, it’s up to them to find a way to save themselves – and each other.
