Being young today often seems to hold more fear than hope. This atmosphere of despondency is particularly prevalent in the largest juvenile correctional facility in the Balkans, where Jovan Todorovic and his crew filmed the lives of the minors that have been forgotten and sidelined by Serbian society. Juvenile, which we're premiering an excerpt of today on Dazed, documents life within a correctional facility for the young adults and children who've been sent there. For these young people, who range in age from 14-23, the outside world can recede into an unfamiliar place – particularly given that the longest court sentence that can be imposed is four years, a lifetime for any restless young person who dreams of freedom.
