Abstract:

In the film Talk 16, five very different sixteen year-old girls were interviewed and filmed at home, in school, at work and with their friends. The girls openly shared their secrets, frustrations and dreams, and their innermost thoughts about boys, drugs, peer pressure and self-esteem. Three years later the filmmakers went back and filmed this follow up, intercutting between the old and new footage. The result is a sometimes funny, sometimes sad portrait of growing up female in our society. Rhonda, who at sixteen had dreams of stardom, realizes that it's difficult to be an actress of you're black and not beautiful. Spunky, hardworking Lina is now in college and convinced that only plastic surgery will bring her a husband and happiness. Erin, still as pretty as she was at sixteen, has become a "wild girl" on her college campus. Helen, the daughter of ambitious Korean immigrants, is studying pre-med and finally getting out from under her parents yoke. Astra, the streetwise school drop out in Talk 16 has a good job and a boyfriend, but there are still hints in her life of the "bad girl" she used to be. This candid, refreshing look at girls on the verge of adulthood will be food for discussion for years to come.
