TATTOOED TEARS

An exploration into the daily lives of four young males in a maximum security juvenile correctional facility in Chino, California.

The California Youth Authority was created in 1941 ''to replace retributive punishment with treatment and rehabilitation."

Tattooed Tears is an intimate, hands on encounter with a maximum security juvenile correctional facility in Chino, California. Broomfield’s film becomes a 13–week odyssey into hell, charting with great compassion many young men’s struggle for survival in a brutal environment.

"A film which in every scene and every choice of shot, treats its subject with intelligence, thought and compassion...cinema vérité at its best - and perhaps at its limits." CLIVE HODGSON, FILM
