Virtually Free

40m English, Media Studies, Social Studies 2020

Every year about 300,000 kids are confined in juvenile detention in the US. 70-80% percent of those detained will be re-arrested within 3 years.

Suggested age group: 12+

Virtually Free follows three teens in a Richmond detention center, who are offered the chance to become activists speaking truth to power.

Participating in a local arts organizations’ program, they are taught by different artists to deliver their powerful, authentic messages to the public, law enforcement, and government officials using their art, including a VR jail cell they’ve helped create.
