Emily McDonald directs this beautiful and multi-layered piece for Nowness about what it means to be a father in the 21st century.
Of her filmic tribute to Father's and families Emily says:
"The men in this film are multi-faceted fathers whose front-seat approach to parenting is breaking down stereotypes. We hear their hopes for the future, as well as how their various roads to parenthood have shaped the man and father they have become".
"Regardless of background, these men all share the same hope for their children - that they will live in and contribute to a world that is kind and accepting".
"This film is for all the dads who are shaping our next generation with positivity, compassion and open-mindedness".
