Veteran Seattle documentary filmmaker Heather Dew Oaksen spent 20 years making Minor Differences. She didn't mean to. It just wasn't enough to meet and talk to five kids while they were in maximum security lockup, though—for her or for them.
So they ended up forming long-term relationships. The movie follows all five youth 18 years later, too.
Two of the subjects plus the filmmaker will be at SIFF Film Center on Monday night to talk and screen excerpts from the movie.
