Who Were The First Teenagers?

Long before the cynical Millennials, the snarky Brat Pack, and bad-boy greasers of the 1950s, teenagers were finding their own voices - and using them to scream at their elders.

Most historians pin the origins of teen culture to the 1950s, when adults first noticed that adolescents were dictating trends in fashion, music, film, and more. But director Matt Wolf's latest film, called simply 'Teenage,' challenges the notion that this turbulent, in-between life stage is a modern development.
