A group of teenagers finds itself in a contradictory situation. They came to take part in a theater workshop and suddenly find themselves participating in a Casting for a film. Workshop and Casting take place concurrently, and increasingly contradict each other. The young protagonists still have to define the roles they want to play. How are they dealing with those different requirements and how do they act out resistance towards them? 'Stars' is a semi-documentary film that juxtaposes the Coming of Age novel with the TV Casting Show genre. The video partly replays dramaturgic elements of Casting Shows in order to investigate their aesthetic potential and, at the same time, to critique the ideas about education and subjectivation conveyed through them.
