Abstract

Misunderstood

The following short film shows young men and their youth worker engaged in the Enthusiasm project, an initiative for young people in gang-associated areas. It presents their ideas for supporting other young men to leave gangs. It is part of a series of four powerful short films: Gang associated sexual exploitation and violence. These four films were commissioned to the University of Bedfordshire by the Office of the Children’s Commissioner for England as part of its Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Gangs and Groups.

The University of Bedfordshire worked with young people from eight different youth projects across England to produce this series of films about what needs to be done to address the issues of gang-associated sexual violence and exploitation.

The young people took charge of these films – first with workshops to explore the issues and then scripting and scheduling each film. They had control over the content, how the films were made and were actively involved in the editing process. The films were made in partnership with Latimer Creative Media.
