Scenes at an Orphanage in Dachau, Germany, at end of World War II.
The time is at end of World War 2. Slate describes this film as the Orphanage at Dachau. A bucolic scene shows horse-drawn wagon moving along country road, with twin spires of a church, visible in the background. Camera zooms in on church spires and roof, and then to a sign near the door reading,"DP Childrens Center, UNRRA, Team 182." (DP means Displaced Persons, UNRRA stands for United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration.) At the entrance, itself, a sign reads:"Ausländer Kinderstation, UNRRA, Ausschuss 182 (Foreign children's ward, UNRRA, committee 182). Children run down the stairs of the building and are seen, next, outdoors in a grassy churchyard, where they form a circle, hold hands, and dance and sing. Scene shifts to indoors in a high-ceilinged room filled with daylight from several large windows where the children sit for a nourishing mid-day meal. Men in military-like uniforms pass trays of food to children standing in line. A similarly-dressed woman helps several very small children down the stairs. A line of babies sit at a long table and are fed by a Nun in habit. Closeups of the babies trying to feed themselves. Next scene shows a Nun washing the babies, in a nursery, with cribs in the background. View of many pre-school age babies seated on the floor playing together with toys. Outside, in the grounds, school age boys play football (soccer), while schoolmates watch from the sidelines and cheer. Location: Dachau Germany. Date: 1945.

Community Video 1980
This unique video interviews community video activists about the phenomenon around community video and what it means to people. There are scenes of children shooting a video, the interviewee explains that the aspects of community video are twofold: one is people being involved in community video and the second, is individuals being able to see themselves on video. This is particularly prevalent for individuals with disabilities, who can build skills with video. Another interviewee explains that community video is interesting because it allows a community to reflect on itself. The footage ends with participants discussing what the future holds for community video in the 1980s. One individual explains that community video is the only industry that is expanding, another interviewee states, however, that in the new political climate, community video hasn't adapted with it.

Parsons then interviews a van driver called Tyler and a window cleaner called Fred Read who give their opinion. He then interviews Dr. C. E. M. Joad who also agrees with equal pay for equal work because women tend to get ill or married and have children and are not constant workers, so paying them equally with men means the employer will always choose the man because he is more consistent!

THE MEIJI SHRINE IN TOKYO JAPAN, 1981
Shichi-Go-San is a festival for three-year-old girls and boys, five-year-old boys and seven-year-old girls. The words literally mean three, five, seven, and they are related to the rituals of the transition of children to these certain ages. Boys and girls had their heads shaved up till their third year of age. The five-year-old boy celebrates by wearing a hakama, trousers with pleating that is symbolizing the seven virtues. The seven-year-old girl celebrates by wearing her first obi (a wide starched belt) in kimono. This custom is rooted in the Heian period (794-1185) where the nobles chose a lucky day in November to celebrate their children age transition to the middle age. During the Kamakura period (1185-1333) the 15th of November was designated as the feast day for the children's transition. Every 15th of November or the nearest Saturday to this date, boys and girls of the ages above, along with their parents, visit a Shinto temple to chase away the evil spirits and pray for the health and well-being of their children. The girls wear kimono and the boys wear a traditional haori overcoat and hakama pants. After the visit, the parents take pictures and buy chitose - ame (a candy bar of a thousand years) to their children, a candy bar stick in a paper bag decorated with cranes and turtles, symbols of longevity. The film takes us to the Meiji Temple and we watch snapshots of the festival.
