WHEN I GROW UP...
88 min. 2018, PUERTO RICO (recorded in Puerto Rico)
Directed by Karen Aurora Rossi


Three Puerto Rican teenagers who will soon finish high school explore the
limits of their autonomy as they decide to participate in a series of personal
development workshops. They live in the Luis Llorens Torres Housing
Project, the largest public housing complex in the Caribbean. Naming
this community evokes news of violence and social crisis, a stigma that its
inhabitants must face daily. Carving their own unique path to adulthood
requires confronting the community’s expectations for them.
 

KUI MA SUUREKS KASVAN...
Re˛issöör Karen Aurora Rossi
Kolm Puerto Rico teismelist otsustavad osa võtta enesearengu kursustest.
Nad on kasvanud kurikuulsas sotsiaalmajade kompleksis, mille nimetamine
manab otsekohe pildi vägivaldsest paigast ja mille kuulsus käib kannul kõigil
asumi elanikel. Seistes täiskasvanuea lävel, on teismelised silmitsi ühiskonna
eelarvamuste ja ootustega.
