Sally Garcia and Family
Program Number


Series Description

Showcase of independent filmmakers. Series release date: 1980

Program Description

When Sally Garcia of Chicopee, MA decides to go back to work, her whole family feels it. She's torn between a sense of independence, and her duty as a mother; the children support her but miss her; and her husband must reexamine many of his assumptions about women. No conclusions are drawn but one family's experience with an increasingly common event provokes second thoughts. Filmmaker Joyce Chopra.
