A short narrative film by writer/director, Shontina Vernon, and produced by Kirby Grey. Grrrl Justice explores the pathways of girls and gender non-conforming youth of color into the juvenile justice system. The three protagonists centered in this triptych refuse to accept current circumstances as the final word on their lives. Navigating a world of invisibility, each girl must come to terms with what it means to be seen. In the end, it's their story to tell. Run time 16:09.
