THE STORY: In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, This is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era: Warren Straub, a dejected nineteen year old who steals fifteen thousand dollars from his abusive lingerie-tycoon father; Dennis Ziegler, the charismatic domineering drug-dealing friend who helps him put the money to good use; and Jessica Goldman, the anxiously insightful young woman Warren yearns for. Funny, painful, and compassionate, This is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers - ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagin.

THE STORY: No a tour-de-force exploration of the New York City public school system.

THE STORY: Remember those glorious days of Saturday morning sci-fi serials at the local bijou: Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon? Here is an affectionate and extremely ingenious send up of the genre. Our hero is Buzz Gatecrasher and he finds himself on the Planet Darvon with our sweetheart and his, Hillen Dale, and with Dr. Art Deco, the obligatory dotty scientist. Darvon is ruled by Vaknor, a cross between Darth Vader, Ming the Merciless, and Dracula, who fancies himself Emperor of the Universe. With the help of Arno, the winged King og the Hawk People, Buzz vanquishes Vaknor and saves the Universe only to be reminded by the announcer that we all have to tune in next week for Episode 27!
