Directed by Brian Lindstrom

Oregon 1997 11 mins.

Students on probation with the Multnomah County Department of Juvenile Justice, led by Northwest Film Center Filmmaker-in-residence Brian Lindstrom, explored the then newly enacted Measure 11, the State of Oregon’s law requiring mandatory sentencing for youth offenders. Featuring interviews with legislators, judges, victims, juvenile court officials and the young video makers themselves, the film offers an insightful view of the system by those who know it best. Produced in partnership with the Regional Arts & Culture Council’s Youth Arts Program, Oregon Arts Commission, and Multnomah County Community Justice.
