Playing Jared Leto’s lover isn’t the only thing Deerhunter and Atlas Sound’s Bradford Cox will do for modern cinema. As Pitchfork points out, the singer-songwriter has written a score for director Matt Wolf’s forthcoming documentary, Teenage.
Based on Jon Savage’s book of the same name, the film’s official website describes it as “an unconventional historical film about the invention of teenagers,” one which “reveals the pre-history of modern teenagers and the struggle between adults and adolescents to define youth.” Wolf worked with a wealth of archival material and also directed 16mm recreations with modern actors that were based on actual diaries. Savage also wrote the screenplay.
The film’s slated to surface next year. In the meantime, check out a trailer for it below.
