Juvies: A Chance Film Documentary

by Leslie Neale
Director?s Statement:
“When I started volunteer teaching at Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles, I was na├»ve to juvenile justice, thinking children were handled fairly and with care, not only for their safety, but also for the safety of the public at large. What I found is that scores of children are getting thrown away in adult prisons instead of staying in the rehabilitative environment of the juvenile system, a structure originally designed to protect them from ending up in the adult system. The making of ?Juvies? has made my life make an irrevocable turn towards correcting the juvenile justice system, making it one that is run with intelligence, responsibility and mercy.”
