Image from the film Your Children Come Back To You
A single mother ekes out a living from welfare check to welfare check, struggling to provide for her daughter. She is faced with the decision to look after her personally or to allow her sister-in-law to provide “more than enough” to go around. Larkin’s film masterfully presents a child’s perspective on wealth and social inequality. (16mm. 30 min. Not Rated.)

A Different Image An African American woman living away from her family in Los Angeles yearns to be recognized for more than her physical attributes. In cultivating the friendship of a male office mate, she aspires to a relationship where sex is not a factor, seeking someone who can “see her as she is,” rather than see only what he wants to see. - Samuel B. Prime (16mm. 51 min. Not Rated.)
