Ignite My Flame [Video – 4:54] (2010)

This is one of two videos created by young people at the Burnaby Youth Custody Centre in British Columbia as part of a four-day literacy program.

The young people teamed up with filmmakers from Reel Youth, a non-profit program that helps people and organizations create and distribute films about issues they care about. They produced the music beats, wrote the lyrics, and filmed the videos.

In this video, young women from the centre talk about their lives, which have included physical, emotional, sexual, and substance abuse. However, they also talk about their intense desire to change their lives, and to learn from their mistakes.

The identities of the young women are protected through the use of theatrical masks, shadows, animation, and editing effects.
