Am I A Bad Kid?

Jay is a 19-year-old college student from Bristol. In this short documentary, Jay explores the lack of support that the school system provides for excluded kids and young people with diverse needs. Along the journey, Jay reflects upon his own struggles with being excluded from school, and how being labelled as a 'bad kid' has damaging effects for a young person's development.

This documentary was made by young people on the BFI Film Academy programme and delivered by Watershed.
