Film At 11: “High School Record”

Members of No Age, Mika Miko, Lavender Diamond and the Minutemen make up the cast for this coming-of-age indie film, from director Ben Wolfinsohn. High School Record is a faux-documentary that follows the lives of four 17-year-olds during their senior year, as they deal with the awkward and uncomfortable tribulations that come with young adulthood. With a cast comprised of amateur actors and filmed in low-grade digital video for a budget of $6,500, the film became an official selection for both Sundance and SXSW earlier this year. It’s now available on DVD from Factory 25.

They clearly ripped off the character of Bill from Freaks and Geeks for the kid with the big glasses–it’s like he’s even trying to sound like Martin Starr in that show.
