5 Girls airs on WTTW

Maria Finitzo's 5 Girls, an award-winning documentary that closely follows five teenagers in Chicago as they navigate adolescence, will air on WTTW Wednesday night at 10pm.

The film originally aired on PBS' P.O.V. strand, and was praised for its depth and candor by critics, with the Boston Globe stating it revealed a portrait of teenage female life "we've seen little of in mainstream media."
