Dazed’s “Tribute” Series Lets Youth Get the Last Word
Dazed Digital’s ongoing Tribute series is a collection of short documentaries about teens from all over the world. From videos about homeless teen Lily, who lives in the abandoned warehouses of Jamestown, to charismatic Ezekiel (above), a wannabe preacher and child prodigy who’s a local celebrity in his own neighborhood, the series triumphs in its diversity. Each short film has a different director, so no two documentaries are the same. What is the same, however, are the slice-of-life stories of average teens and the power behind their unique stories. If you have time today, we recommend you sit down and watch them all. There are also Q&As with the directors up on Dazed’s website.
