Director: Catherine van Campen
Run Time: 1:00:00

Synopsis: Joan Sträter offers psychotherapy to out of control teenagers, predominantly of ethnic minorities. Mostly boys. They have all had encounters with the police, for reasons varying from robberies to abuse, skipping class or shoplifting. The documentary shows Joan counseling Alaa and Adil, fourteen-year old twins of Moroccan origin.
Joan's Boys is a film about the interaction between Joan and 'her boys'; about how their often completely separate worlds can connect. The film is not just a double portrait of client and counselor; it is also about 'looking' and 'being looked at' and how we so easily judge worlds foreign to us.
