Indigenous Australia and a childhood in custody: Louie’s first night in juvenile detention

Guardian
Guardian
When he was eight, Louie (not his real name) was taken from his parents and placed in care. As a teenager he lost both of them in the space of a year, ended up homeless, then became one of the nearly 1,000 kids who Australia keeps locked up in detention centres. This video animation is a recreation of an interview with Louie for the new Guardian Australia series Childhood in custody, which investigates why so many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children are caught up in our juvenile justice system – kids like Louie. The project is supported by the Barlow Foundation
