Produced as part of the PBS Middletown project focused on the different social institutions in Muncie, Indiana, the documentary "Seventeen" (1983) immerses us in a group of seniors at Muncie’s Southside High School as they experience their final year in high school together. Directors Joel De Mott and Jeff Krienes capture the teens’ daily lives with an intimate observational lens as the group navigates this turning point with uncertainty and experimentation. Reflective on the themes explored in this year’s One Read selection "The Big Door Prize," "Seventeen" is an honest and moving exploration of the ups and downs of young adulthood in small town America. The screening will be preceded by a talk on teen mental health. (Not rated, 120 mins)
