A Different Image

A Different Image (1982)
16mm, color

An African American woman living away from her family in Los Angeles yearns to be recognized for more than her physical attributes.  In cultivating the friendship of a male office mate, she aspires to a relationship where romance is not a factor, seeking someone who can "see her as she is," rather than see only what he wants to see. 

Samuel B. Prime

Available for research at UCLA
