Recently dipping his toes in the world of film by appearing in the Oscar-nominated film Dallas Buyers Club, Deerhunter‘s Bradford Cox has continued his involvement in the medium by scoring the upcoming documentary Teenage.

Directed by Matt Wolf and written by Jon Savage the official synopsis is as follows: “Teenagers didn’t always exist. They had to be invented. As the cultural landscape around the world was thrown into turmoil during the industrial revolution, and with a chasm erupting between adults and youth, the concept of a new generation took shape. Whether in America, England, or Germany, whether party-crazed Flappers or hip Swing Kids, zealous Nazi Youth or frenzied Sub-Debs, it didn’t matter - this was a new idea of how people come of age. They were all ‘Teenagers.’ A hypnotic rumination on the genesis of youth culture from the end of the 19th century to the first half of the 20th, TEENAGE is a living collage of rare archival material, filmed portraits, and diary entries read by Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, and others.”

Arriving in theaters on March 18, a trailer for the film has appeared online, including some music potentially made by Cox.
