5 Girls is a documentary made by Maria Finitzo in 2001. For three years, Maria followed 5 American adolescent girls ages 13 to 17 in and around the Chicago area. The documentary captures the difficult issues Corrie, Toby, Amber, Aisha, and Haibinh encounter on a daily basis as they evolve into young women. The viewer is introduced to each girls' varying dilemmas and also learns that while the girls differ in their race, social class, and the problems they face, there are some things they share in common: their resilience, their self-awareness, and their ambition to stay true to themselves despite the hardships or influences they might face in the future. The film was praised by the American Psychological Association for breaking the long-standing stereotypes regarding teenage girls. The documentary shows that teenage girls generally do posses the skills necessary to overcome their struggles, the work only lies in discovering this knowledge within. The film also puts to rest the idea that teenage girls don't like to associate themselves with their parents and family. In the end, they want nothing more than to belong.moreless
