It's a Teen's World: Wired for Sex, Lies and Power Trips
It's A Teen's World is a documentary film by Lynn Glazier that follows three groups of culturally diverse Toronto teens who share what it's like to navigate a tangled web of sex, lies and power trips.
There are 21 teen participants in the documentary film and radio series from three areas of Toronto. In addition to sharing their personal stories about navigating a hyper-sexualized culture, each group undertook the task of making an 8-minute fictional film about the social and sexual pressures of being a teen. The complete dramas have been adapted as educational modules on the topic of teen sexual harassment for use in the classroom and youth groups.
The one-hour TV premiere of It's A Teen's World airs on Monday, October 5 at 10 pm ET/PT (with a repeat showing on Sunday, October 11 at 8 pm ET) on CBC Newsworld's The Passionate Eye. You can also listen to the 3-part documentary series airing on consecutive Wednesdays starting September 30 at 9 pm ET on CBC Radio One's Ideas. Watch the trailer now on YouTube.
