All American High | Film 2014 | SXSW

January 30, 2014
n 1984 - before cell phones, the internet, and reality TV, a young filmmaker set out to document a year in the life of a typical, suburban California high school. The result was ALL AMERICAN HIGH, a timely and timeless classic of teenage life. Narrated by the visiting foreign exchange student from Finland, the film examines the social rites of passage of American teens. After the film, there will be a new update featuring many of the original participants. Now middle-aged, key students from the Class of 1984 will provide a fascinating look back at their high school years, and will explore the generational divide between the retro 1980s and today.
