A HARLEM MOTHER

In 1998, 18 year old LaTraun Parker made a documentary about the difficulties of growing up in Harlem. Eight years later he was shot dead on the street. Today his mother Jean Corbett-Parker fights youth gun violence and helps other parents survive the pain through het organization, Harlem Mothers. Weaving footage from LaTraun's own film with scenes from Jean's new life today, "A Harlem Mother" is a short documentary that tells this tragic and inspirational story from the dual perspectives of mother and son.
