Kasper Bisgaard, Denmark, 2012

55 min.DK/Documentary

Fadi Kassem has dedicated his life to being a role model for the youngest members of the immigrant environment in Aarhus. Fadi himself has been in trouble with the law and therefore understands the problems of these youngsters better than most. Now he works hard to ensure they do not make the same mistakes he made. It is a battle between the youngsters on one side and the authorities and employers on the other. In "Ghetto Boy" we mainly follow Fadis work with 14-year-old Bekir, who has been charged with robbery several times. Now Fadi has found him a job and at the same time struggles to keep Bekir in school. The question is whether this will be enough to keep Bekir away from crime?

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
