Little Cinema No. 11 – Necktie Youth w/ Tiger+Man + Octagon 360 Afterparty
Apr 12, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm| $12
Our Little World series — once a month we’ll pick a country and devote a night to bringing its culture to Bushwick, Brooklyn.
Our first destination will be Johannesburg, South Africa, for a screening of the charged film, Necktie Youth. Disillusion. Post-Apartheid. Post-Internet.
Jabz and September are angry. The two twenty-something year olds float through a day of drugs, sex and philosophizing in their privileged Johannesburg suburban neighborhood. Shot using bold-black-and white photography, Necktie Youth pivots around the fall out of the internet live-streamed suicide of their friend, Emily. They are ill-equipped to handle the tragedy that interrupts the mundaneness of their millennial lives.
“Breakthrough director Shongwe-La Mer’s racially varied human subjects belong to what South Africans have come to term the “Born Free” generation: Born after Nelson Mandela’s liberation and into a new democracy, they haven’t directly known the horrors of the country’s political past, yet are still living with its legacy.” – Variety Magazine
