The Kids are not Alright, Remembering Kids and Kidulthood

Looking back at 2 controversial films

 Kids  1995

 The film is centered on a day in the life of a group of sexually active teenagers in New York City and their unrestrained behavior towards sex and drugs during the era of HIV in the mid 1990s.

Kids created a considerable controversy upon its release in 1995, and caused much public debate over its artistic merit, even receiving an NC-17rating from the MPAA.[2] It was later released without a rating. It is often compared to topically similar films such as Thirteen (2003) and Kidulthood (2006), which deal with similar issues. Directerd by Larry Clark

 

Kidulthood 2006

Kidulthood is a 2006 British drama film about the life of several teenagers in the deprived Ladbroke Grove and Latimer Road area of Inner West London. It was directed by Menhaj Huda and written by Noel Clarke,
