Synopsis

Martin is a young man in love with a girl he barely knows. He wants to scream his love out to the world even if the world is trying to quiet him down. Daniel is a musician turned into a taxi driver after he impregnated his teenage girlfriend. The day he decides to become a responsible grown up will be one of the unluckiest days of his life. Dulce is an aggressive bully in high school, but deep inside she sees herself as a nice girl who deserves to be loved and she’s ready to loose her virginity with the first guy who is willing to take it. Pedro is a boy with a disappointed view of the world of the adults, who has decided to stop speaking as a normal person and starts his own language. All of them have this irritant obstacle in common: the adults.

Statement

Go Youth! is a dark comedy of teenagers in an overpowering society. Today, Mexican government is paving the ground for a dim, polarized future. Young generations seem unaware of the country they will inherit. I want to focus on 4 dreamers within that context, struggling to break free and claim their place in the world. Kids today are taught to obey authorities and social media, without questioning. I am concerned about their conformism. Because as we grow old we adapt into a society that is sleeping, but not dreaming. Go Youth! should be realistic yet visually appealing, reflecting the absurdities of Mexico but withdrawn from negative stereotypes, while representing the youth that set their generation in motion.
