VMS PRODUCTIONS— Promoting Socially Engaged Filmmaking

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

Since 2017, I have been working with the New York-based Psychoanalyst and Filmmaker Victoria Mills, in the development of the promotional materials for her laureate documentary Like Any Other Kid.



Socially Engaged Filmmaking


Like Any Other Kid provides a rare glimpse into the inner workings of one of the most promising developments in juvenile justice reform: using non-punitive, therapeutic programs to change behavior and help youth re-enter their communities, following the intimate relationships between incarcerated youth and staff in three unique facilities across the country over three years, the film shows how these programs work.


Based on the Missouri approach, where love and structure, instead of punishment, are used, these programs guide and teach youth to take responsibility for themselves. Through scenes of conflict, vulnerability, reflection, commitment, and joy, the youth transforms. Like Any Other Kid shows us the great potential of these youth if we let them be just that: like any other kid.
