Put the Camera on Me

2003 NR

Filmmaker Darren Stein scoured his personal archives to assemble this pastiche of home videos documenting the formative years that defined his grown-up persona. With his suburban friends as the actors, he began making impromptu films at age 7 about topics ranging from the holocaust to erotic fantasies. Reflecting from his adult perspective, Stein uses his early movies to examine his then-nascent homosexuality and youthful theatrical proclivities.
