This video features Imaginary Johnny's "Small Prices" accompanied by a series of intimate portraits by filmmaker Matthew C. Mills. We are grateful to Matt and to the many stars of the film.

I was primarily raised by a single mom who always worked. I've always been impressed by the ability of women to juggle careers and families, seemingly with more poise and grace than men. When I first heard "Small Prices," it seemed to me a song that championed women. As such, the subject matter for my video is dedicated to women in the workplace. I set about my neighborhood on a very snowy Friday & Saturday, asking various women I know and don't know if they'd volunteer. Out of the 22 I asked, I only got three no's. I am grateful to the women who let me take their video portraits. They are: Nellie, Angelica, Anika, Chika, Hazel, Danielle, Susan, Frankie, Davinnia, Stacey, Wendy, Darinka, Zein, Seryn, Emily, Milana, Gloria, Giovanna and Philippa. Thank you all. Thanks as well to my friends Brian & Elke who assisted me on the shoots and to my wife, Kristen, for letting me disappear for three days with 19 other women. - Matthew C. Mills
