Billy The Kid

Billy The Kid

SBS2  |  March 23, 2016

This emotional documentary begins as an intimate portrait that quickly expands into broader social observation of teenage self-discovery; both the darkest and brightest places in youth. Shot over eight days over two seasons, summer and winter, the film uses a trans-genre, verite approach in which the subject seems to be directing the movement of the film as equally as the filmmakers behind the camera. This is the coming of age journey of a teenage outsider who confronts obstacles with courage and awareness.
