Next Films at Opalka:

April 16- Teenage
A hypnotic rumination on the genesis of youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th, TEENAGE is a mesmerizing trip into the past and a riveting look at the very idea of “coming-of-age.”

 May 7 – My Sister’s Quinceanara
Made with Mexican-American residents of Iowa with no prior acting experience, the film is a rural coming-of-age drama about circumstances, American aspirations, and the effect of family ties.
