1983, 21:10 minutes, colour, English


The Party's Over is a tape that reveals teens feelings and/or experiences with drugs, alcohol, relationships and entering the adult forum. The story revolves around a party/reunion being thrown by two teenage girls in their basement apartment. Soon the party is well under way and they're all getting into it; drinking, smoking and dancing.Lewis, the drug dealer, arrives and turns one of the girls onto Angel Dust. She has a bad reaction and stumbles through the group to the kitchen where she collapses, bringing the party to an abrupt end. A final rap poem implores understanding and advises "you don't need that stuff". If a young person takes drugs before s/he has developed a strong enough ego to withstand the massive interior experience s/he may encounter, s/he may be obliterated.
