A.K.A. Don Bonus

Thematic Outside Looking In: Coming of Age Stories Curated by Alan Berliner

For most American 18-year-olds, senior year in high school is a year filled with hope for the future. But for Sokly “Don Bonus” Ny, it is a challenge to simply gradate and survive his complicated life of housing projects and family problems. Ny captures the daily activities that seem like the life of any teenager. Through on-camera monologues, Ny also captures a deep personal side, confessing fears and desires, and revealing the inner struggles leading to a slow maturation.
