[SHORTS] Parental Guidance

Parenthood is equally as demanding as it is enriching. These films don’t shy away from some of the more difficult aspects of parenting. Whether it is the mental anguish of losing a child in THE PREGNANT GROUND, a mother in MOM FIGHT doing whatever she has to do to get her child a prized action figure, or the multi-layered feelings of inadequacy in SECOND PARENT, we can see that child rearing isn’t a role to be taken lightly.
