About

Juvie is a powerful and dynamic film series created by Dahsheen Amin (Creator, Producer, Writer/Director and Licensed Mental Health Therapist and StaceyAnn Henry (Creator, Producer, Creative Director, and Youth Advocate/Mentor).  The Juvie movement works to highlight the countless legal injustices and counterproductive nature of excessive juvenile incarceration that Dahsheen Amin has witnessed over her 20 years as a youth clinician.

 

Juvie offers a candid illustration of some of the systemic issues that plague at-risk youth and perpetuate the rate of recidivism for juvenile offenders.  This innovative film series gives a powerful rendition of some of the intrinsic precipitating factors such as multi-generational poverty and incarceration, lack of education and resources, lack of family supports and mentorship, and the need for positive role models.  

 

Juvie follows the inception of each character’s personal struggles with poverty, trauma, criminal enticements, and their eventual fateful demise as they succumb to the reality of juvenile incarceration.  

Juvie highlights the need for compassion, forgiveness, and connecting with youth on a tangible level.
