The Lollipop Generation


The Lollipop Generation is the first feature film by the Canadian artist and musician G.B. Jones.  It follows a runaway teenager named Georgie (played by Jena von Brücker) and three friends as they encounter a world of punk and perversion while roaming North America.  Shot on Super-8 and video, The Lollipop Generation is equal parts fictional diaristic narrative and document of the underground characters who Jones met while travelling.  Vaginal Davis, Calvin Johnson, Jen Smith and a bunch of other awesome performers, musicians, and artists make guest appearances.  It was composed over a period of 13 years, stopping and starting whenever the director could afford to buy another cartridge of film.
