Sounds Like Teen Spirit: A Popumentary

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Sounds Like Teen Spirit: A Popumentary is an affectionate, comic and unique feature documentary that delves behind the scenes of the world's premiere youth music spectacle; The Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

While The Eurovision Song Contest has matured into the highest rating non-sporting event in the world, enjoyed by over six hundred million people annually, Junior Eurovision is somewhat more of a home-grown affair. Now in its seventh year, the Junior competition differs in one major aspect from the adult competition: all of the ten to fifteen year old amateur contestants must compose and write their own entries and sing them in their national language.

Not knowing who would make it through all seventeen participating countries' national selections, the film crew travelled from Belarus to the Ukraine, Cyprus to Belgium and Malta to Sweden to see whom each nation selected to represent them in Rotterdam at the Final.
