Product Notes

A group of teachers at a Mojave Desert high school takes an unconventional approach in an effort to improve the lives of their struggling students. Located in an impoverished Mojave Desert community, Black Rock Continuation High School is one of California's alternative schools for students at risk of dropping out. Every student here has fallen so far behind in credits that they have no hope of earning a diploma at a traditional high school. Black Rock is their last chance.

"The Bad Kids" is an observational documentary that chronicles one extraordinary principal's mission to realize the potential of these students, whom the system has designated as lost causes. Employing a verité approach during a year at the school, this Sundance award-winning film follows Principal Vonda Viland as she coaches three at-risk teens - a new father who cannot support his family, a young woman grappling with sexual abuse and an angry young man from an unstable home - through the traumas and obstacles that rob them of their spirit and threaten their goal of a high school diploma.

This DVD features surround sound, English subtitles for the deaf and hearing-impaired, bonus features including the character reel of Caitlin Jeffries, Dave Johnson and AJ Wright, Summer's Choice NYT OpDoc, Jennifer Plays with her Cousins, AJ sings "Don't Expect A Call," Joey performs "Sing her Song," additional "Kids' Inner Thoughts" Sequence, Bartz Hall Makeout, The Feast, "This Town" recording and the official "The Bad Kids" theatrical trailer.
