Made by four 17-year-old directors with help from a professional crew, Salt is a four-part filmzine: four films, four flavours, four windows into youth culture. These provocative 20-minute moviezines made by high school students provide an insider's look at youth culture. The four 17-year-olds explore such issues as alternative education, Montreal's flourishing independent music scene, the troubling practice of self-mutilation and a quest for the punk subculture.
