This film premiered at the 2015 Images of LOVE benefit. It was created pro bono by Dream Machine Creative. We owe many thanks to the team who donated their time and creativity to making this film about LOVE.
LOVE’s mission is to enable youth who have been affected by violence to create positive change in their lives and become leaders among their peers and in their communities.
We do this by providing safe settings, media arts training, social and emotional learning, and leadership development opportunities. Youth emerge from LOVE committed to carrying forward messages of non-violence, and ready to engage more fully in the world around them.
LOVE is a non-profit after school program in NYC that serves at risk youth 12-18 years old, who are victims, survivors, witnesses and/or perpetrators of bullying, drug abuse, cutting, domestic abuse and many other forms of violence as defined by our youth.
