On The Outs
This dramatic narrative feature follows the story of three US inner city teenage girls as they struggle to grow up among seemingly impossible circumstances. Based on true stories, the film features a hip hop score and is filmed in a hyper-realistic style on the streets of Jersey City, New Jersey and in the same juvenile detention center where the filmmakers worked for months with incarcerated young women. The film was released theatrically in the US and France.
