Films selected for these students try to show common difficulties faced in this peculiar moment in life, using the language of fantastic cinema. Common realities interfacing at different cultural and social levels show how young people deal with the same problems, have the same interests and the same feelings. Potential subjects faced in this section are therefore infinite. Relationships with peers, the way different cultures address such a complex period, rites of passage establishing the coming into adulthood, various interests nutured from youngsters. How to grow up in today’s world and how directors succeed in analysing future generations? Our objective is to show the side, sometimes comic and sometimes dramatic, of individual growth, kwowing from the beginning that there are no univocal answers.
