Few film genres have such recognisable traits as the high school film. We can all picture the yellow school buses dropping off pubescent teenagers at a schoolyard bathed in sunlight. Not to mention the social hierarchy where cheerleaders and jocks rule supreme while freaks and geeks lounge around the bottom. BEYOND CLUELESS discusses these clichés and many more, in an attempt to achieve a deeper understanding of the genre. The result is a highly entertaining documentary that burrows into the heart of the American high school comedy.
A Q&A session with directors Charlie Lyne and Catherine Bray will be held at all screenings.
Charlie Lyne (b. 1991, UK) BEYOND CLUELESS is Lyne's debut as documentary film director.
