WHEN KIDS RUN AWAY

A film by Reinhild Dettmer-Finke SWR/defi-filmproduktion/Behring Filmproduktion 2004, 45 Min.

The film “When Kids Run Away” recounts a nightmare many parents have.  Your child skips school, starts lying, refuses to accept rules and decisions made, takes drugs, eventually no longer takes part in family life and just runs away.
This nightmare takes shape with the example of 15 year-old Chiara.

“…The SWR documentary successfully combines long-term study, analysis and social criticism all in one. It was surprisingly multi-facetted. The film’s open end virtually demands a sequel.”
