Now available for community screenings in Australia
A group of fathers confront the pain they have caused and take hold of a chance to transform their most precious relationships.
Call Me Dad is a story about men who have perpetrated, or are at risk of perpetrating, family violence. At stake is the safety of children and partners, the stability of families, and the power we as a society have to intervene. These men struggle to maintain intimate relationships without resorting to abuse, physical or otherwise. We follow these men over several months, as they attempt to change themselves, and heal fragile bonds with their loved ones.
Host a screening of Call Me Dad in your community or organisation.
1. Develop a specialist response for domestic violence cases
2. Support those who are most at risk of future violence
3. Intervene early and provide effective legal help
4. Support women and children to financially recover
5. Strengthen understanding of all family law professionals on family violence
‘I will stand up, speak out and act to prevent men’s violence against women.'
