Especially in today’s social media-based world, forgiveness is not an easy thing, and our pasts can come back to haunt us when we least expect. They Call Us Monsters takes a look at this tricky subject matter, the idea of second chances and who deserves them. Directed by Ben Lear, the documentary offers a debate of the legislation which allows juvenile offenders to be charged as adults. Should they be tried and punished, or be allowed to course correct and live a full life?
The film centers on a trio of young men specifically, Juan, Jarad and Antonio, with the exclusive clip below giving us a peak at the latter’s release.
They Call Us Monsters is currently available to stream on iTunes and VOD.
