As we grow up the things we fear grow with us and often magnify in to larger issues. The fears of the adults can be seen as reflections based on the difference in each of their backgrounds. When we’re young everything seems to be so simple, and the advice from the kids in Past The Fear remind us to find the humor even in some of our darkest times.
Four young filmmakers with varying levels of experience co-directed Past The Fear for the inaugural year of the Woodstock Film Festival Summer Youth Film Lab.
