No Place For Children

No Place for Children takes a sobering look at the juvenile justice system in America, posing questions surrounding accountability and the moral/ethical dilemmas we face in criminalizing our youth. 

While issue centered, we take a narrative approach; exploring the personal stories, human experiences and complicated relationships of those entwined in this system. We want this film to raise questions and open up a dialogue about nature vs nurture, individual responsibility  vs societal accountability and America's emphasis on retribution rather than rehabilitation. 

Featuring some of the leading experts in this field, this film tells the stories of three young men who have been sentenced to prison for more years than they've been alive.
