Gang violence plagues schoolyards and pervades city streets. Both inner-city and suburban teenagers are confronted by it daily. This documentary-style program features former gang members and their stories.
Each one views his/her experience differently and viewers will learn who joins gangs, the reasons they join, and alternatives to gang life.
As psychologists and inner-city counselors discuss the need to belong, low self-esteem, peer pressure, and academic failure, they also offer expert advice.
An extremely focused and insightful view of a serious problem. DVD format only. 26 minutes. 2000.
