Streetwise (1984)

Film details


Documentary which looks at the hopeless lives of children aged between 13 and 19 who frequent an unsavoury area of Seattle. Sleeping in derelict buildings, they pester passers-by for small change and forage through dustbins for food. They argue, commiserate with each other and fight, occasionally dreaming of a better life.
