Aired: 5/22/2017 | 0:01:39 | Clip
In this scene from the Independent Lens film They Call Us Monsters, filmmaker Gabe Cowan introduces us to the screenwriting class he teaches to a group of incarcerated teen boys housed at a Los Angeles facility for juveniles tried as adults. While they can't physically leave, they can imagine their stories on screen, and we see a scene from this autobiographical film-within-the-film.
