"CUT: Teens and Self-Injury" provides an intimate look at a largely unacknowledged problem that affects thousands of young people, their families and friends. Using the words, music and artwork of the teens themselves, director Wendy Schneider draws back the curtain on the sensationalism and secrecy surrounding the cycle of self-harm and brings this hidden issue into sharp, clear focus. As teens articulate their experience with self-injury, we see them begin to confront their urges and their deepest feelings. Personal struggles are offset by interviews with parents and mental health professionals who address the problem from a broader context, and by rock icon, Shirley Manson, who shares her own experience with self-injury. Compelling, incisive and profoundly moving, "CUT" issues a call to bring the problem of self-injury out of the shadows and reminds us that the first step towards healing is an honest acknowledgment of reality. Includes music by Garbage, Plumb, Gina Young, and Cyndi Boste. Running Time: 57 minutes. View video clip with Karen Conterio; View short video clip.
