Stories From The Shower. The language of the adolescent body

When it comes to showering after gym class, what do young people think? It is possible for different people to have very different experiences from the same changing room. There are some people who shower naked, others who shower with underwear on, and others who spray a little extra perfume and hope for the best. 

The short documentary Stories from the Shower explores how adolescents experience school showers and changing rooms. Their stories paint a picture of a time when the changing room became a center of joy and hardship for young people.
