Films We Love: Teenage Superstars

In Teenage Superstars, filmmaker Grant McPhee delves into the pre-Britpop Scottish music scene, a fertile time that produced bands such as The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Pastels, Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub. McPhee teases out revealing interviews with the likes of Alan McGee and Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore to celebrate the raw and vital energy of this influential period for pop. “Teenage Superstars sparks reminiscence of the energy and joy of the Scottish music scene in the 1980’s, and affirms despite humble origins, its extraordinary impact around the world.” – Screen Machine team This screening is part of Films We Love. In September 2018 we launched Films We Love as a way of showcasing our commitment to broadening the Screen Machine’s programme, focusing first on World Cinema. Now, our first Films We Love season in 2019 brings four new documentaries to a range of locations on our touring route. Each documentary is connected to Scotland in some way, whether that’s where it was produced, the subject of the film, or the filmmakers themselves. We’ve chosen these films for the considered and inquisitive ways they present their subjects, whether they’re revealing a very Scottish sense of solidarity, or demonstrating Scotland’s huge cultural impact around the world. We hope you’ll discover a story you connect with as much as we have. Tell us what you think of Films We Love!
