Inside America

 
Inside America is based on director Barbara Eder’s memories of her time at a high school in Brownsville, Texas. The camera follows six young people on the threshold between puberty and adulthood. The actors actually attend that school, leading to a blurring of reality and fiction. The dreams of these young people in the film could be those of the actors, and these dreams are in stark contrast to what is taught in class, their first experiences with drugs, smalltown violence and hopelessness.
