About The Other Kids

The Other Kids - Trailer from Chris Brown on Vimeo.

A raw, intimate look into the struggles of six small-town teens on the verge of high school graduation, The Other Kids is a groundbreaking hybrid of fiction & non-fiction in which real teenagers collaborated with director Chris Brown to tell their own gripping, personal stories. Shot without a script over the course of 18 months, The Other Kids was fueled by the teenaged actors’ real-life feelings, experiences and struggles. The result is an intimate and honest glimpse into the life of the American teen.

About the Guest

CHRIS BROWN (Writer, Director, Editor)

San Francisco writer/director Chris Brown has been making features and documentaries for well over a decade. In 2015, he co-produced the acclaimed documentary "On Her Own" which premiered internationally at HotDocs and was declared "A must see" by MovieMaker Magazine. "A River Changes Course," the groundbreaking feature documentary that Brown edited and associate produced, won the GRAND JURY AWARD at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE at the 2013 San Francisco International Film Festival. His third fictional feature, "Fanny Annie & Danny" (2010), won 16 awards internationally, was hailed as "an indie masterpiece" by THE HUFFINGTON POST and a "Critics' Pick" by THE NEW YORK TIMES.

Brown co-directed and edited the environmental documentary "The Next Frontier," which won the 2011 Regional EMMY Award for BEST DOCUMENTARY, as well as its sequel, "We've Got the Power," which was nominated for an EMMY in 2013. Brown's prior films include "Daughters" (“Something as genuinely unpretentious as Chris Brown's debut feature seems an anomaly.” – VARIETY), "Scared New World" ("Solidly in the tradition of pioneer indie pics like Cassavetes' 'Shadows'." – VARIETY), "Battleship Contempkin" (" should check this film out if at all possible." – FILM THREAT), "Lost Cat"("Defies categorization...hilarious." - SF CHRONICLE), and the 1999 SFIFF Golden Gate Award winner, "Office Furniture."

Brown has lectured and presented his works at many high schools and universities, including UCLA, USC, Boston University, Loyola University NOLA, the San Francisco Art Institute, The Friendship Academy, Minnesota State University, Stratford Comp High, CSU Monterey Bay, UM Kansas City, University of Central Florida, and the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.
