Teenage (2013, 77 min, Dir: Matt Wolf)
“Teenagers didn’t always exist, they had to be invented.”
Teenage documents the formation of youth culture, as it took shape across the world from the midst of the industrial revolution to the mid-20th century. Narrated by Jena Malone (The Hunger Games) and Ben Wishaw (Skyfall), who read directly from the diary entries of teens throughout various cultures and decades, Teenage is a chronicle of the cultural rebellion, political activism, and popular trends ignited by young adults, as they established themselves as a new, not-to-be-ignored segment of the population. Poetically pieced together from rarely seen archival footage, Teenage showcases the birth and evolution of the “teenager,” through the eyes of subjects as diverse as flappers, Hitler-youth, and black teens living under segregation.

The 1985 commercial for the Peugeot 205i, which featured remarkably executed stunt-driving and a gripping helicopter chase, is regarded as an unforgettable piece of art. The spot is so memorable that Peugeot decided to remake it 30 years later, using pristine CGI effects that were unimaginable in the 1980s. This making-of video documents how WIZZ directors Andy’s made a photorealistic recreation of a classic using mostly CGI, and achieved shots and effects that were impossible 30 years ago.

The Cristal Festival is an annual gathering of the world’s top minds in advertising.

Animators and Digital artists make their careers out of producing art on assignment, but that doesn’t mean they’re not creating their own work out of pure love in their spare time. The art exhibition PLAYGROUND, held at La galerie L’Attrape Rêve in Paris from January 6-18, is an opportunity for the work that professional designers including P.I.G.-repped Flying V and CRCR make for fun, when off-duty, to finally be appreciated by others. January 18 is arriving soon, so get there quick!
Acclaimed actor Chen Daoming is an artist who has mastered his craft thanks to his boundless love for life and immutable desire for exploration.
Being a captivating screen thespian and a spokesman for Lilanz menswear, Chen Daoming followed his hunger for inspiration to that most picturesquely arranged of world cities, Copenhagen, Denmark.
A pleasant, route-less bike ride through beautifully architected Nordic boulevards was just what the actor needed to quell his yearning for the simple, yet sophisticated.
Created by Suntchi, produced by PIG China, and directed by renowned TV drama director Shen Yan (We Have Nowhere to Place Youth), “A Journey to Explore Simplicity” is a short highlighting how classically styled and expertly crafted fashion can be a source of inspiration, an encapsulation of culture, and an embodiment of the simple, yet sophisticated.
