Good afternoon,
I have a faculty member who has asked for a list of video materials, both
documentary and film, that discuss or depict children living in poverty with
an added emphasis on the lack of health care available to them (if
possible). I have begun to compile some documentaries, mostly from the
1990s, but am unfamiliar with feature film titles that may be applicable
under this umbrella. His first suggestion for a feature film was Grapes of
Wrath. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
