  • Clip (0:01:55) | IN Dramatic
    Premiere: 5/22/2017

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film They Call Us Monsters, teenager Juan, who is incarcerated for 90 years-to-life for first degree murder, talks about the girl he’s had a crush on since kindergarten and may never have a chance to tell her how he really feels given his situation. Juan, who is learning screenwriting from filmmaker Gabe Cowan, once even stuck a love poem in her backpack which she didn’t see until several days later, and then he didn’t reveal it was from him.
