The Kimberley Foundation Backtrack Boys Private Screening | Kino Cinema | jeudi, 31. octobre 2019

Join us for a private screening of Backtrack Boys, a documentary about BackTrack—an extraordinary not-for-profit organisation founded by Bernie Shakeshaft in a rural town in New South Wales.
The film explores BackTrack’s philosophy in action and reveals how it helps young people navigate their relationships, deal with personal trauma, take responsibility for their actions and gain practical job skills so they can create a sustainable future for themselves.
Catherine Scott, director of Backtrack Boys, said “I hope this film will foster a greater understanding of the issues these kids **** and inspire communities to develop real alternatives that will help keep them out of jail”.
BackTrack has a 87% success rate when it comes to education, training, and employment and has reduced the local youth crime rate by 35%.
For those interested in youth justice and community safety, it’s a powerful example of a whole-of-community approach that diverts children and young people from the criminal justice system and reduces the chance of them re-offending—an approach that can be used in communities around the country.
Straight after the film we will have a Q&A with Bernie. This is a great opportunity to ask questions, hear directly from the founder, and talk with each other about solutions.
BackTrack Boys will start at 6.00pm sharp. Our Q&A with Bernie Shakeshaft runs from 7.40 - 8.10pm. The bar at the Kino will be open, so we hope you will join us before and after to talk and share ideas.
