Two Documentaries on Teen Girls in Transition
Director Janet McIntyre and Executive Producer Kelley Baker discuss the new documentary Faded: Girls and Binge Drinking, which follows the lives of four Portland teens from diverse backgrounds but facing similar struggles. Jenn Chavez talks with Janet about the March premiere of Faded at the Northwest Film Center, and S.W. Conser asks Kelley about his new book Sound Conversations with (un)Sound People and about making independent films on a shoestring budget. Meanwhile, visiting filmmaker Linda Knowlton brings her documentary about girls adopted from China to the Portland International Film Festival. Somewhere Between is screening as part of PIFF's Global Classroom film program for high schoolers and teachers.
