Description

From the series "Teens Against Violence", this film shows teens overcoming the fears and vulnerabilities of growing up in an increasingly violent and rapidly changing society. Through role-playing, theatre groups, peer discussion groups and anti-violence collectives these activists have educated themselves and their peers towards a deeper understanding of the effects of violence rooted in sexism, racism and homophobia.
