Fatherhood is a short film designed to decode the intimacy between men of colour; in particular, the relationship between father and son, which is hardly portrayed in mainstream media. Fatherhood is a narration, which describes the complex feelings that men may have towards their fathers – starting from childhood through to adolescence and finally adulthood.

The story depicts the emotional turmoil that can arise from unresolved issues within relationships; how they play upon a young man’s psyche leading up to manhood and how they change his viewpoint on himself as well as his father. As a result of this, the non-existence of male role models has led to a perpetuation of anger and resentment in men. Fatherhood aims to address these feelings by focusing on the relationship between father and son rather than its divide. Fatherhood aims to challenge the stereotypical ideals of manhood in order to break a cycle, which has culminated into the neglect of these relationships, and adopts a symbol of accountability and forgiveness for past wrongdoings in a beautiful and profound way.
