National PBS Premiere Tuesday, July 24th at 10 p.m. (Check your local listings)
Take It From Me is truly reality programming. As shown in the experiences of several women and their families, the new welfare system, with its recent controversial reforms, may make it easier to ignore rather than confront the complexities of poverty amidst plentitude. Quietly powerful, the film offers a vivid portrait of resilience amidst the daunting reality of being poor. In doing so, it deeply recognizes the humanity of those most vulnerable of Americans.
