Please join us on FRIDAY, MARCH 11th for a screening of Calling My Children by award‐winning filmmaker, David Binder.

 

Calling My Children is an intimate portrayal of the effects of love and loss on one family’s struggle to remain connected. Spanning 22 years, Calling My Children illuminates the emotions and development of a family coming to terms with illness, loss, and healing. With AIDS as a subtext, the film strives to transcend the stereotypes and preconceptions about race, class, and infection. Gail Farrow, a devoted mother and wife died when she was 27 years old. She left behind her husband Ronald and their four young sons; Ronald Jr., Frank, Kennie and Bennie. With insight and honesty, his film and photographs explore the pieces Gail left – photographs, letters, guidance and memories…Twenty years after her death, Gail’s hopes for her family collide with the reality of their lives.
