The Birth of a Candy Bar

1988, 29:56 min, color, sound

Six young participants in a pregnancy prevention and parenting program at the Henry Street Settlement in New York City collaborated with Branda Miller on this tape. In individual segments, which were written, directed, taped and edited by the teenagers themselves, they present their firsthand views of teen pregnancy. Using music, docu-dramas and interviews, they analyze sexuality in the media, produce a rap song, and interview a grandmother whose fourteen-year-old grandchild is now a mother herself.
