STREAMING FROM 8TH - 14TH OCTOBER (UK & IRELAND)
Shot over a period of 7 years and inspired by the director’s own childhood in Montreal, the film centres on a group of teenage friends whose lives and relationships evolve as the years pass. After we first meet them as teens, we next meet them after 5 years, and then a further year later. How have their young lives developed? Have their dreams and ambitions been realised? Evoking similarities to the films of Richard Linklater, FLASHWOOD provides a unique snapshot of adolescence as we watch our young protagonists grow-up on screen before our eyes.
