Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter
This documentary chronicles the various stages of a mother's Alzheimer's disease and the evolution of a daughter's response to the illness. The desire to cure the incurable--to set right her mother's confusion and forgetfullness, to temper her mother's obsessiveness--gives way to an acceptance which is finally liberating for both daughter and mother.

Unnatural Causes
A medical detective story out to solve the mystery of what's stalking and killing us before our time, especially those of us who are less affluent and darker-skinned. These are slow deaths, the result of a lifetime of grinding wear and tear, thwarted ambition, segregation and neglect. But this is also a story of hope and possibility, of communities organizing to gain control over their destinies and their health.

Freedom Machines
This PBS special redefines "disability" through personal stories of technology, reflecting on America's largest minority: 55 million people with disabilities.

Transgender Tuesdays
They came for the hormones and stayed for the healthcare. These are the pioneering patients of the first free clinic in the country for trans folks, 1993 in the Tenderloin of San Francisco. More than a film about a clinic, the filmmakers had access to the unvarnished stories of 12 courageous individuals, who share their life experiences in the "Bad Old Days" decade by decade—from the closeted 1950s, through the AIDS epidemic in the 1990s—all illustrated by amazing (and fun) archival imagery. The second half of the film shows what a difference the groundbreaking Transgender Tuesdays clinic made in the lives of the country's most medically underserved, misunderstood, and despised minority.
