Description

DADDY DON'T GO (USA, 2015, 88") - BROOKLYN PREMIERE
dir. Emily Abt, Andrew Nam Chul Osborne; exec prod. Omar Epps, Malik Yoba

Daddy Don’t Go captures two years in the lives of four disadvantaged fathers in New York City as they fight to defy the odds against them. And the odds are real - men living in poverty are more than twice as likely to become absent fathers than their middle-class peers (U.S. Census Bureau). Alex, Nelson, Roy and Omar shatter the deadbeat dad stereotype and redefine what it means to be a good father for all men.

Executive Produced by Omar Epps and Malik Yoba. Best Documentary American Black Film Festival. Support from Jerome Foundation, Lewis Center for the Arts (Princeton), NYFA, NYSCA. Vimeo Staff Pick. World Premiere at DOC NYC 2015.

Preceded by...

ALL MEN ARE FLOWERS (USA, 2015, 17") - NEW YORK PREMIERE
dir. Shirley Kim-Ryu

Kara, 15, misses an opportunity to ask out her first high school crush before going away to Korea for the summer. When she returns to her mother’s hometown, she encounters her grandfather’s spirit. He gives her a vision of many men, her muses, and says to Kara, “I’ll tell them to be pretty for you.” With the support of her grandfather, Kara feels empowered to surrender the pre-existing notion of “a girl waiting to be pursued by THE ONE,” and to take action to pursue the object of her desire.
