Season 16, Episode 13 Love & Diane
First Aired: April 21, 2004
“Love and Diane,” an eye-openingly intimate chronicle of five years in the lives of an emotionally fragile young Brooklyn mother and her own mother, who, between the two, embody many of the pathologies of poverty, drugs and HIV among them. For much of producer-director Jennifer Dworkin's cinéma-vérité film, Love tries to regain custody of her son, while Diane, who had lost custody of Love and her siblings years earlier, tries to get off welfare. They make progress, but for Love especially, it's halting, and ultimate success is far from certain.
