About Your Children Come Back to You

Your Children Come Back to You | Directed by Alile Sharon Larkin: Your Children Come Back to You is a contemporary allegory about values and assimilation. The film literalizes the meaning of a “mother country” by means of the story of a young girl, Tovi, torn between two surrogate mothers: one comfortably bourgeois, the other nationalist. Cinematography by Charles Burnett and co-starring Angela Burnett. [27 mins; drama; English]

“Director Alile Sharon Larkin’s film masterfully presents a child’s perspective on wealth and social inequality.” – Samuel B. Prime, UCLA

“[Larkin is] a young and original filmmaker whose pride and sensitivity is matched, happily, by an equal aesthetic sense … If there’s any other film as tender as this one, I haven’t seen it.” – Ruby Rich, The Chicago Reader

“This work provides a raw, revelatory glimpse of a single mother making ends meet, as seen through the eyes of her precocious daughter.” – Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

Will screen with Claudine | Directed by John Berry.
