This series of contemporary and classic films is specially curated for teenagers in and around Cambridge. The selection, including both short and feature-length films, is meant to provide teens with an opportunity to watch work focused explicitly on their experiences. Covering a range of topics, emotions, and nuances, these free films—depending on length and scope—will be followed by conversation with faculty from the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.

About today’s films:
The One You Never Forget, 2019 (Morgan Jon Fox; English; 9 min.)

A 14-year-old African American excitedly prepares for his first prom, but when his date arrives he’s faced with a split-second decision.

Sublime, 2022 (Meinkincine; Spanish with English subtitles; 100 min.)

Sixteen-year-old Manuel lives in a small coastal town. He plays bass in a band with his best friends. One of them is Felipe, with whom he shares a strong friendship from a very young age. Manuel is dating Azul, a relationship that they are intensely exploring. But when it comes time to have their first time together, Manuel feels something completely new that makes him see Felipe with different eyes. Routine situations of that friendship change tenor. Manuel tries to figure out if the impulse is mutual. The challenge is not putting the friendship at risk.
