Women and girls are the fastest growing incarcerated population in the United States. Girl Trouble, a work-in-progress documentary, is an unflinching portrait of several at-risk young women in San Francisco struggling to get out of the system.
Anatomy of a Documentary in Action brings together the filmmaker with Kansas City artists, youth, educators, students, parents, professionals and non-profit organizations to explore the intersection between making art and creating change. Participants can record a video postcard to be sent to the girls in the documentary.
