Euphoria isn’t your average teenage drama and neither is how it’s filmed.  The popular series returned in January for Season 2 but there was something different about it. While the first series was shot entirely digitally, the show’s director took the daring decision to shoot season 2 entirely on 35mm Kodak Ektachrome film. 

The show follows a group of emotionally intelligent, angsty teenagers as they navigate their way through High School. Faced with issues surrounding drugs, gender, love and social media, the show’s exploration of dark, often adult themes reveals a more somber side to student life. While Euphoria might not be the easiest watch, it’s taken the world by storm due to the standard of acting, plot, cast, cinematography and fashion choices.
