All This Panic affirms that self-important feeling you had as a teenger: My life is a silverscreen epic. This film follows a group of teenage friends with an emphatic lens as they navigate their way around being a teenager. It’s not as exciting when you read it but just remember how everything felt so momentous in your teenage years. This movie has got it good.
Jenny Gage and Tom Betterton, creators of the film, spoke to Dazed how the film became focused on just all-girls. “I kept saying, ‘Why don’t we have a Stand By Me? Why don’t we have a Boyhood? Where are our films?'” Jenny shared. The husband and wife also related how they didn’t want it to be staged too tightly, with a dark lens. It’s about capturing the feeling how teenage girls feel the epicness of their age. “That is the time in your life where you feel like everything is as important, like you’re starring in a movie or something–we wanted to make, on every level, that movie basically and make it look like the movie you thought it was going to look like. Make it feel like how it feels like to be a teenage girl…” said Tom.
We don’t know if this film will hit Philippine cinemas. We’ll keep you posted when we find out or if you can access it via online streaming.[Dazed]
