When it Rains (USA, 1995, Directed by Charles Burnett, Video, 12 min.)
What would you do if your mother, your sister, or your neighbor didn’t have the money to pay rent, and the landlord wouldn’t budge? Babu has the answer in this short film.
Final Insult (USA, 1997, Directed by Charles Burnett, Video, Color, 70 min.)
Babu is still helping folks out, but this time as “Box Brown”, a homeless home loan accountant. At his Bank of America 9-5 he can’t help anyone, not even himself. He wanders Los Angeles, meets friends and enemies, and laments life on the streets.
