I'm not black, I'm not white, not foreign, just different in the mind. Different brains, that's all", explains Billy in this sensitive and humorous verite portrait of a 15-year-old outsider growing up in small town America. Jennifer Venditti's highly acclaimed, award-winning documentary, Billy the Kid is a coming-of-age story like no other, an odyssey into the soul of a shy but uniquely articulate teenager. Following Billy as he cycles through the quiet streets of his small town in Maine, we watch him traverse the frustrating gap between imagination and reality, grappling with isolation and first-time love. Through the director's sensitive direction we see the world from the point of view of an expressive and seemingly fearless outsider. Both exhilarating and unsettling, this portrait challenges the viewer to understand this triumphant teen on his own terms.
