You, Mother

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Filmed in San Francisco, YOU, MOTHER offers a look at parents and children shopping, playing in the park, waiting in lines, riding in cars. The voices heard are those of women telling why they have children. The juxtaposition of sound and image raises questions about some of the reasons people give for bearing children. Originally made as a letter to my younger sister, YOU, MOTHER is especially useful in high school classrooms. The film stimulates discussion of topics such as what choices of lifestyle are open to young people and the effects one's personal choices have on others.
