Presented by the UCLA Art & Global Health Center and UCLA Prison Education Program, our three 10-minute films are centered around topics including:


Pregnancy & STIs


Under the terms of the 2016 Healthy Youth Act, the State of California requires comprehensive sexual health education for all high schoolers. However, youth in Los Angeles County juvenile detention centers and in underserved communities are not guaranteed to have access to such vital information.

During the summer of 2022, we worked with screenwriter Francisco Aviles Pino with input from nine formerly incarcerated and justice system-impacted writing fellows to create the characters and narratives. In fall, we filmed in Baldwin Park, California, and on campus at UCLA.

Throughout winter and spring 2023, we are working with community organizations that support justice system-impacted young people.

Films directed by Chloë de Carvalho and produced by Cut & Cue.
