Award winning documentary film Calling My Children is an intimate portrayal of the effects of love and loss on one family’s struggle for unity. Gail Farrow was a 27-year-old woman, the mother of four sons, who was living with and who died of AIDS in 1989. 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. Gail was survived by her husband Ronald and their sons Ronald Jr, Frank, Kennie and Bennie. David has continued documenting the family over the past 25 years. In em>Calling My Children, the most recent update, we see that twenty years after her death, Gail’s hopes for her family collide with the reality of their lives. Calling My Children is a testament of a family’s life and a mother’s love.
