Lost Boys of Taranaki

Web (Full Length) – 2018

Kelsten, Quba, Danye and Bailey are in their mid teens, and are prime contenders for jail. This documentary follows their progress completing a seven week START (Supporting Today's At Risk Teenagers) programme for young people who have already entered the criminal justice system. A hike into the beautiful and daunting Taranaki bush sees the group start to realise their potential. But for these mostly fatherless Māori teenagers changing ingrained behaviours will be a lifelong challenge. The START Taranaki team know this only too well. 

I had to jump in a police car not that long ago and my little brother started crying. I don't want to see him like that again.
– Kelsten on knowing he has to try and change his life direction
