    A Question of Color

    A Short Wait Between Trains
    It is 1945, the end of World War II is near and four African-American combat soldiers return home from the carnage in Europe. The men are battle-scarred, proud, decorated and very happy to leave the fighting behind. When they stop to switch trains at a station in rural Georgia, an unexpected encounter leads to a tense confrontation. For these men, the war is over but other battles have just begun.
    Length: 25 minutes

    Children of the Struggle
    When a prominent Los Angeles attorney receives a letter from a dying man in Alabama, he embarks on a journey to discover the truth about this mysterious gentleman's connection to the mother the attorney never knew - a woman who risked everything to stand up for the rights of a friend. The film is a powerful story of friendship, love, family and sacrifice set against the turbulent times of 1964's Freedom Summer. First-time director John Benitz delivers a beautifully crafted and highly provocative tale that packs a punch.
    Length: 31 minutes
