Still from "Wildness" (2012) Directed by Wu Tsang.

Though often characterized as entitled, shallow narcissists obsessed with social media likes and overpriced avocado toast, the millennial generation is in fact an extraordinarily diverse group whose lives—shaped by socio-political upheaval, economic recession, and dramatic developments in technology—are only beginning to be fully understood. We Can’t Even: Millennials on Film is a wide-ranging survey that explores how this complex generation has been represented on screen and, more recently, how it has come to represent itself. What emerges is a vivid portrait of a generation finding its way and discovering its voice in an increasingly uncertain world.
