Generation SMS


In the triumphant spirit of films focusing on tournaments you never knew existed, comes this portrait of six teens in their quest for the US National Texting Championship. Armed with two thumbs and a cell phone, the contestants compete in New York City for a $50,000 prize. So who are these teens who spend their lives text messaging, and why do they do it so obsessively? Academy Award®–winner Bill Couturié (producer, Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt) turns his camera on these unique individuals as they ready their thumbs for the main event.
