The Outsiders


Ponyboy & Johnny

The Outsiders, 2005

Sodapop & the greasers

2005, 6mins, super8

A super-short super8 remake of the Coppola classic. An obsession of mine, and a lot of other girls, this movie touched my sense of belonging at a time when I felt I had none – teenagehood. Years later, when tomboy-ish has matured into gender-bending queerness, 21 grown ‘girls’ play at ‘boyhood’.
This film embodies both a music video style of fast cuts and silent film intertitles – a post-post-modern experiment of complicity and resistance.
