This short film comes from filmmaker Ryan Reichenfeld. It's a deeply honest but humane portrait of a teenager in Lake Havasu City, Arizona.This is Reichenfeld's hometown too, which makes the film feel even more personal. It can be stark for sure, but you may come away feeling like I did, that you just saw something really beautiful. [Explicit]
Reichenfeld is now based in Los Angeles. The film is part of the TRIBUTE series which focuses on youth culture, co-produced by Mainline's Vince Haycock and AG Rojas. Other films in the series can be found at Dazed Digital, home of British art and fashion magazine Dazed and Confused.
