Older Women and Love

New 2K Digitization

Through interviews and dramatizations, this taboo-shattering film offers a touching and often humorous look at social attitudes toward relationships between older women and younger men. The filmmakers are involved on both sides of the camera as they direct their multiracial cast in an insightful profile of older-younger relationships, while their subjects are candid and comfortable discussing the joys and problems of loving someone of a different generation. (Camille Billops & James Hatch, USA, 1987, 26 min.)

The KKK Boutique Ain’t Just Rednecks

New 2K Digitization

Camille Billops and James Hatch trace the ways in which Americans have tried to ignore, deny, suppress, contain, tolerate, legislate, mock, and exploit racial discrimination within the United States. Like a modern-day Virgil and Dante, they drive, cajole, and lead their cast through a tour of the contemporary landscape of racism. (Camille Billops & James Hatch, USA, 1994, 59 min.)
