Straight Talk

The Law & The Streets


Straight Talk is an honest and poignant dialogue between Police officers and high-risk Latino youth (young men & women). The youth were able to ask the police candid and poignant questions about the law in regards to: gangs, drugs, youth incarceration, youth violence, sex, date rape ...   The police also asked the youth candid questions about their lives and the choices they were making.  All chapters include an interactive dialogue that captures the youth perspective and the police perspective.    The faces of the youth are blurred to protect their identity. This film offers a rare interface between "street" values and life style of these youth, and the implications of this with the law enforcement officers in their community.
