“Remand”: A Short Film on Jail for Kids in Africa (Finished and in HD)

After some small changes and post-production improvements, "Remand" is now a finished film!  The documentary is short, only 6 minutes.

At Pepperdine, we've been assisting the juvenile justice system in Uganda by going into children's prisions to prepare their cases for trial.  Unfortunatly, kids easily slip through the cracks and some wait as long as 2 years without receiving a trial for a crime they are merely (and often wrongly) accused.

The film is in HD, so please watch FULL SCREEN by clicking the little "X" betwen "HD" and "Vimeo" on the menu at the bottom of the clip window.

On a technical note, I shot this film on a Canon 7D with L-Series lenses.

    Thank you so much for a great story and for your documentary on the remand home. Some of the stories at Nguru are shocking. It amazes me that even after a child has been freed or even given a verdict of not guilty that they still continue to stay at the remand home because there are no funds for them to travel home to their village.

      Thanks, Karen. Yes, I agree. Some children have to stay because they have nowhere else to go once they are released. It is very unfortunate.

What do you think?
