An ode to fatherhood by director Dumas Haddad. Challenging the stereotypes that surround black men in modern society, “Fathers” gives insight into the emotional and spiritual lives of a group whose mental health is too often disregarded. The film is accompanied by poet Sophia Thakur, who speaks from a mother’s perspective of the struggle she sees between fulfilling personal ambitions and providing for their young families.
