It’s 24 fast-paced, frenetic hours in the lives of a group of teenagers confronting life in the 90’s. As an artistic endeavour, it’s the breathtaking images of one of the world’s most renowned photographers set in motion to capture the beauty and tragedy of youth…

Our take

A defining film of 90s American independent cinema, Kids is full of eye-opening, unsentimental insights into the lives of New York teenagers. The first film credit for screenwriter Harmony Korine (just 19 years old), and much of its ensemble cast, including Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson.
