At the center of 24-year-old director Antonio Campos's debut feature, Afterschool, is the 21st Century media technology. With the advent of You Tube and cell-phone video cameras, everything from giggling babies to impromptu acts of violence has become internet entertainment. In such a world, can young people engage in reality without the distance the screen creates? Robert is a sophomore at an east coast prep school, assigned to capture stock footage for the video yearbook. When his assignment leads him to inadvertently filming the gruesome deaths of two of his classmates, Robert's world is altered forever. Campos manages to keep the social criticism to a minimum (though that criticism sears), instead he focuses on storytelling ? the ever-shifting allegiances of high school, the generational misunderstandings, and the difficulties of growing up. As a result, Afterschool is one of the most assured debut features in some time.
