Summer Growing Up

  • Armand 15 ans sur Facebook

Documentary, 50 minutes, 2011

Director: Blaise Harrison

Synopsis:

Summer, a small town in the South of France. School is coming to a close, the kids shout excitedly and send each other texts. Armand is 15; he’s different. Fatter, more camp, more exuberant and yet more secretive than the others. For him, summer stretches ahead, with the sound of the crickets, his girlfriends chatting, siestas in the sun and American TV series. There will also be quiet moments of solitude.
