The objective of Saad Adam's documentary is to identify the reasons behind the current bad reputation of Mt. Druitt youth, and have the same analyzed by the people who grew up and are living in the area.
Saad held interviews amongst a number of people who shared the concern of Mt. Druitt becoming a crime zone in Sydney. They also shared their own viewpoints of how to avoid or keep oneself safe from those crimes, drugs etc. Even people also inferred that Mt. Druitt is still doing great, as their primary place of work, study and business. Nevertheless, it's not the same like before. The interviews featured in the film were all properly setup. People interviewed in the film came up with their natural backdrops. It pulled out the ethnic mingling to portray thoughts from all schools.

Authenticity, originality are the clues in this great documentary where you find everyone sharing the same concern and having their own way out of it, interpreted and expressed so vividly. Saad featured the reason and explained what others are thinking about the Mt. Druitt youths becoming so famous for their notorious activities with good hope that its community life can improve to a better state with more economic activities in the area. The message is clear.
Question Mark Films, Saad's own production house, brought the documentary to life. The Lives Of Mount Druitt Youth got a brilliant background score and proper cinematography. The work itself is remarkable and thought inspiring. Bringing the promise to the line Saad's work is destined to get the viewers scratching their heads, wondering how they ever thought so differently. Sydney has got something to watch finally with Saad Adam's The Lives Of Mount Druitt Youth!
