Informative Blogs
John Leonard New York Magazine "... As usual with Bikel, there is a minimum of editorializing, a maximum of alert sympathy for everybody talked to, and a startled eye, a kind of exacerbated witness, on unruly emotions and lunatic systems. We emerge from When Kids Get Life, as from each of her previous films, not merely indignant, but injured in our humanism." When Kids Get Life original broadcast - May 08, 2007 at 9pm watch the program online  FRONTLINE WEB SITE This report continues on the companion Web site.

The Pendulum Foundation serves kids serving life in prison. Not only do we educate the public about the injustice of trying and convicting children as adults, but we provide scholarships and other educational opportunities for those behind bars. Our mission includes supporting and initiating sentencing reform legislation and restorative justice alternatives to punishment. Pendulum’s ultimate goal is to ensure – whether inside or outside of prison – well-adjusted and productive adults.
