February 2011 The Crib youth project took 4 young people from different parts of Hackney to Los Angeles. Their aim was to learn more about gang culture in LA and to compare the justice system to that of ours in London. Their message when they came back was powerful. This was trip that changed their mindset and their lives.
The documentary was filmed by the young people, directed and edited by Emeka bnc.
