Description
 
This collection offers a rare look at two early but vital documentaries from Gerald Temaner and Gordon Quinn, the founders who put the "Tem" and "Quin" in Kartemquin Films, the Chicago-based filmmaking collective responsible for Hoop Dreams. In Parents, a parish youth group in a lower-middle-class Chicago neighborhood discusses parental authority, coming of age, and the struggle to communicate with parents. Thumbs Down is the name of a teenage youth group that decides to bring the real meaning of Christ to their neighborhood by holding an antiwar Mass in their conservative parish.
