Seventeen( Visual )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally part of a documentary series updating the seminal sociological study "Middletown", by Robert and Helen Lynd, this riveting documentary records the senior year of Lynn, a white high school senior [in Muncie, Indiana] who becomes the object of neighborhood racism when she dates a black student. Never aired on PBS because of its explosive, graphic content, the film candidly uncovers the turmoil brewing beneath a seemingly placid working-class community : reckless parties, drugs, interracial relationships and tensions, apathy in the classroom and teenage pregnancy. Although it deals with life in a midwestern town the elements depicted in the film could be said to be typical of many communities across America
