Movie Info

Documentary filmmaker Kirby Dick gave small portable video cameras to 10 students at John Marshall High School in the upper-middle-class Los Feliz section of Los Angeles, instructing them to film their lives extensively for one week and then pass the cameras on to other students. Out of the hundreds of hours of footage that the students shot of themselves, their friends and their families, Dick selected 16 students' work to make this thematically varied feature.

Audience Reviews for Chain Camera

  • May 20, 2009
    While I thought this was an interesting look into the lives of high schoolers in LA I didn't think it was a great flick. It is disturbing to see most of these kids acting the way they were knowing that people would be viewing these videos. Candid talk about sex, drugs, and crime shocked me as none of these kids were even 18. We even see two of the folks doing drugs in the film. To me it seems as if most of the kids have already given up and resigned themselves to live out life with the idea that they can do no better than where they find themselves now. I really hope my kids don't fall into that trap as well.
