Movie-screening of OVER THE EDGE
(directed by Jonathan Kaplan, 95min., USA, 1979)

In 1978, more than 110,000 kids under 18 were arrested for crimes of vandalism in the USA. Over the Edge shows a teenage rebellion against all authorities. It's fiction but the story is based on true incidents that occured during the 70's in a suburban community.
This event will be an occasion to make a brief presentation in solidarity with four imprisoned persons being accused of having vandalized youth-prison offices near Toulouse (France) on july 5th, 2011. They are imprisoned since last november 15th.
