Youth Group (2015)

 

Set in the “ethnoburbs” of Los Angeles County, Youth Group explores the ways in which young members, most raised by immigrant Buddhist parents, carve out a separate space for themselves in the temple as they struggle to understand the rituals and beliefs of their parents’ Buddhism.
