Only The Young
Directed by Elizabeth Mims, Jason Tippet
Presented in partnership with Texas Independent Film Network, a program operated by the Austin Film Society.
Only The Young follows the story of three teenagers that live in a small desert town in Southern California – a town dominated by foreclosed homes and underpasses, unfilled swimming pools and skate parks. These kids must find things to do in a place that offers nothing – yet in the course of observing their day-to-day lives, we see them discover friendship, first love, heartbreak, and what it means to be young. Tippet and Mims’ delicate, ethereal filmmaking and Only The Young’s innocent yet rebellious subjects collectively embody the very essence of adolescence.
Co-Director Elizabeth Mims in attendance.
