17 And Life Doesn’t Wait is shedding light on the whole new world that is being 17. A documentary from award-winning director Maureen Judge, the movie paints a lively, candid and emotionally charged view of life through the eyes of three teen girls. The film catches the subjects in their final year of high school, as they experience the impact of the outside world, their impending independence, and the conflicting expectations and overwhelming anxiety that so often comes with being a girl in our society.
Stopping by Your Morning with one of the subjects of the film, Audrey, who is a math and science whizz who balances the two worlds of living and going to school downtown and the expectations of her Asian-American parents, Maureen delves into the teens’ attitudes, actions, and goals in her new film.
