Sounds Like Teen Spirit: a Popumentary


Jamie Jay Johnson


Production support


The outrageously talented Jamie Jay Johnson’s debut feature documentary marks the first partnership between the Foundation and the British Film Council.

This feature pop-umentary follows the 2007 Junior Eurovision contest – a subject which will indulge Johnson’s love of heroic losers and allow his quirky sense of humour to shine. It also promises to provide an insight into both what it is to be young and talented and, with entrants from Belarus, Cyprus, what it means to be European today.

The film is being produced by Stephen Wooley’s Number Nine films and is scheduled for theatrical release in 2008.
