Documentary: “Big Mama”

“When, exactly, are you too old to love your own grandchild?” asks Viola Dees.

Winner of an Academy Award in the Documentary Short category, Big Mama depicts a devoted grandmother’s struggle to raise her orphaned grandson under the watchful eye of a complex and difficult social welfare system.

Big Mama follows 18 months in the lives of Viola Dees, an African American grandmother, and Walter, her grandson, as she tries to raise him alone in South Central Los Angeles.
