ABOUT THE FILM:
During a road trip across America, first-time filmmakers Parker Hill and Isabel Bethencourt meet three spirited teenage girls – Brittney, Aaloni and Autumn – at a gas station in small-town Texas and are inspired to document their carefree summers. This crew of two with only a camera, microphone and a $10 flashlight for lighting soon discovers a much different story. As they film the teens’ activities from bonfire parties to bedroom hangouts, discussions around sex, trauma, agency and consent unfold with candor. Shot verité style, the documentary captures intimate moments of female bonding and gives a candid look at the dark realities that young women face today. In CUSP, Hill and Bethencourt reveal a true-to-life coming-of-age tale and provide an unfiltered snapshot of teenage life in America.
