Abstract

Adolescent in particular, have a radically different capacity to read media texts. Hence the true validity of each problem held by the media texts contributes to uncertainty in the interpretation process of the text. In line with the rapid growth of information technology, what was supposed to make information more available has resulted in more ambiguity among the adolescent in making sense of a message, especially experimental-oriented short films regarding realism issues. This paper examines the adolescent's understanding of the experimental short film ‘KEEP GOING (2016)’ through focus group discussions. The argument focuses on the surrounding environmental context, the everyday reality perspective and the overall view. With the abundance of cultural, technical constraints and the influence of foreign cultures; findings prove that the adolescent in daily life is naturally exposed to the media climate and being able to understand the sense of reality in an experimental short film.
