Social Injustice

Directors: Kivonne Ramsawak, Zahra Gibbons
2011, Trinidad+Tobago
Documentary short / 24 minutes / 16+


This film goes inside the Youth Training Centre and uncovers the stories of three young men, remanded for crimes ranging from larceny to murder. Their gripping testimonies make the case that social factors such as an inadequate education system and familial neglect contribute to the problem of crime that continues to plague our nation’s youth.
