Stolen Lives is a gritty made-in-BC documentary film aimed at auto theft prevention that combines dramatic police video footage with the personal stories of car thieves and their victims. After four years of production this film is now touring high schools across BC along with a companion discussion guide designed to get youth thinking and talking about the issue of auto theft and its link to drug use. Stolen Lives shifts auto crime education away from its traditional focus on car owners and onto the perpetrators, the majority of whom began sealing cars as teenagers. The primary purpose of the film is to save lives by showing young people the real and tragic consequences of stealing cars.
The film has been officially endorsed by the BC Ministry of Education and has been distributed to every high school in the province for viewing at the grade nine through twelve level.
