Street Kids

Street Kids

| 21 min

In this short documentary, a succession of black and white photographs provides a gritty look at juvenile prostitution and at the young people, male and female, struggling to get off the streets. Highlighting the links between being sexually abused as a child, loss of self-esteem, and turning to the streets, the film quickly dispels the images of glamor and big money usually associated with prostitution, and shows the positive efforts of child-care workers to help juvenile prostitutes find a way out.

    Are any of the kids seen in this film still alive? Back then there was still a lot of panic and paranoia about AIDS. I doubt condoms were regularly used. Very haunting.
