The parents are at their wits’ end, so a temporary supervision order is the last hope for a group of teenagers in Punks. Now, on a remote farm in France, they’re going to have to get their lives back on track, with the help of a counsellor. Filmed in constant close-up, the teenagers try to tame their demons with music and therapy, but problems from the past keep resurfacing. In this intimate and sincere portrait, these troubled kids show us their most vulnerable sides.

Director
Maasja Ooms

Maasja Ooms graduated from the Netherlands Film and Television Academy in the early 1990s. After having worked as a cinematographer for about 15 years, she taught herself to become an editor. At first, she worked on documentaries she had filmed herself, and later, she also edited other films and worked as an edit coach. In 2013, Maasja started extensive research focusing on observations about behaviour between people. This led to the production of two films, Tussen Mensen (2015) and Alicia (2017), which she directed, filmed and edited. Punks is Maasja’s latest documentary feature.
