Press Kit
FADED is a 60 minute documentary profiling four young women, ages 14-22, and their struggles with binge drinking. With the eye of a reporter, the curiosity of an anthropologist and the sometimes wounded heart of a teenager, award-winning filmmaker McIntyre launched a five-year mission, embedding herself in these girls’ lives. From high school classrooms to underground college parties, from roller derby rinks to erotic bakeries, FADED explores the vibrant, dynamic and scary life of a 21st century girl.
