Documentary: The Evolution of Dad
Dads and moms are changing. Are you like your parents? I bet not, in many significant ways. As it turns out, someone wants to document how dads are evolving.
From the official website: "The Evolution of Dad is a documentary-in-progress about what it means to be an involved, contemporary American father. The film will explore how fatherhood has evolved over time, what its impact has been on family and society; and lastly, how fatherhood will likely continue to evolve. The overall intention is to create a film that is inspiring, thought-provoking and profound."
A snippet discussing the future of fatherhood:
Evolution of Dad is slated for release in 2010. Documentaries are often a labor of love, difficult to find funding for to produce. If you like what you see, consider supporting the project with your donation.
Three quotes jumped out at me from the trailer:
- "I don’t know my dad."
- "Do I abandon my family or do I abandon the job that feeds my family?"
- "When they walk out on the playground nobody sees them, nobody sees them as a parent."
- And, maybe in 20 years, a book like The Kissing Hand will feature both a mom and a dad.
