A Film by Bess O’Brien
SHOUT IT OUT is a feature film that tells the story of a group of teenagers making their way through high school. The film follows them through some of the more tumultuous moments of teenage hood: academic pressure, friction with peers, teachers, teen pregnancy, sexuality, cutting, class issues, body issues, relationships with parents, trying to fit in, trying to find one’s self, fear of the future, nostalgia for the past, friendship, and first love. Shout it Out is a musical based on Bess O’Brien and Abby Paige’s acclaimed live musical The Voices Project. The stories from the film stem from eight months of research with Vermont teens. All songs are written by VT teens and acted by local teens. Shout it Out is a raw, real, revealing, compassionate, powerful, funny and ultimately affirmative look at the transformative powers of young people.
