Juvies | Chicago Reader

Juvies

Juvies began as a project for a film-production class at a youth correctional facility in Los Angeles and evolved into an eye-opening documentary (2004, 66 min.) on the growing number of kids being tried and sentenced as adults. Their lengthy prison terms are often disproportionate to their crimes; equally alarming is a trend in state legislatures to extend jail time for potential repeat offenders. Leslie Neale directed, and former juvie Mark Wahlberg provides voice-over narration.
