Rites of Passage Trailer

Description

This short trailer has been made to give you a feel for the film Rites of Passage which is in production. Rites of Passage is an art-house, feature-length drama film made up of many stories: a film anthology of stories about young people growing up. The film is not being produced from a pre-conceived script but is being made collaboratively with the young participants of a Beyond Empathy community project. Beyond Empathy is a not-for-profit organisation that uses the arts to improve the lives of disadvantaged young people in communities across Australia. The stories are being 'built' from the identities and experiences of these young people: the things they say, the things they do, the way they act and the stories of their own rites of passage. Because the film is being shot over a period of two years, the young cast grow with their characters and slowly create the stories, making Rites of Passage an exploration at the borderlands of feature film-making to create poetic, impressionistic images of young people's coming of age through adversity and hardship.
