    Still from No Loitering

The Film

In the small island town of Sitka, Alaska, "no loitering" signs adorn most shop windows, and local teenagers know the signs are meant for them. High pregnancy, high school drop-out, substance abuse, and domestic violence rates reflect a generation of teens who feel alienated and isolated. Alaskan Native (Tlingit), Filipino, Latino, Pacific Islander, and Caucasian youth reflect on the possibilities of finding a place in society.
