They Call Us Monsters

(USA, 82 min)

Director: Ben Lear

In California, violent juveniles between 14-17 years old can be tried as adults. Typically, they are accused of heinous crimes—murders and attempted murders—that leave their victims’ families shattered. And yet, they are still kids, with a greater capacity to change and one day return to society. Behind the walls of their prison, three violent juvenile offenders are writing a movie as they await their trials. It’s the story of their childhoods with the ending rewritten.
