We Are Alive documents a process of conducting media production workshops in juvenile reform and welfare institutes in Hong Kong, Macau and Sapporo, Japan. The teenagers in the workshop play with still and video cameras and sound recorders to express their feelings and thoughts, appropriate mainstream popular culture as it was their own, re-imagine their lives as meaningful, respond creatively to the repressive environment around them through fantasies, dreams and songs, and write “video letters” to strangers and to their future selves. This documentary allows us to gain a fresh understanding of these incarcerated youths’ fascinating life stories told from their unique perspectives, and by doing so, helps us to reflect upon the “protection” imposed upon our teenagers, limits of our civility and the openness of our society.
