Written and directed by Mario Van Peebles, We The Party takes a close look at today’s youth culture.

A revealing look at contemporary youth culture, writer-director Mario Van Peebles’ We The Party shows teenagers as they are, not as adults would like them to be. Set amidst the latest trends in music, dance and fashion, We The Party is a colorful, cutting-edge comedy set in an ethnically diverse Los Angeles high school during America’s first black president. The film focuses on five friends as they deal with romance, money, prom, college, sex, bullies, facebook, fitting in, standing out, and finding themselves. Evoking such classic teen comedies as The Breakfast Club and House Party but with an attitude and style all its own, We The Party captures the hopes, confusion, challenges and dreams of today’s teenagers as they plunge headlong into an uncertain future.
The DVD and Blu-ray bonus features include a feature-length commentary by writer-director Mario Van Peebles and actors Mandela Van Peebles and Makaylo Van Peebles, 4 music videos from the film (“Truth,” “She’s a Vegan,” “A Light at the End of the Tunnel,” and “Forever”), and the theatrical trailer.
