Calling My Children
Documentary | 2014 | NR. 0hr 35min
DIRECTOR: David Binder

This acclaimed documentary film tells the story of Gail Farrow, a 27-year-old woman, the mother of four sons, who was living with and who died of AIDS in 1989, and her family and children in the years after her death.

David Binder began this project in 1988 when, as a photojournalist, he first started photographing Gail, with whom he spent a year and half every day documenting her last year of life and her family’s adjustment to their lives without her. David has continued documenting the family over the past 25 years. Gail was survived by her husband Ronald and their sons Ronald Jr, Frank, Kennie and Bennie. In “Calling My Children,”¯ the most recent update on the family, we see that twenty years after her death, Gail’s hopes for her family collide with the reality of their lives.

This film is the third and final installment of a series in coordination with Tacoma Art Museum for their Art AIDS America exhibition that takes place October 3 through January 10.

There will be a discussion with the film's director David Binder in attendance led by Ross Reynolds of KUOW Seattle following this screening.
