Now available in Australia on DVD, digital download and for community screenings.
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.
