FAQ

Q: What is Father Figure about?
A: Father Figure is a video documentary that examines fatherlessness at both the micro (familial) and macro (societal) levels in North America. The effects of father absence created through divorce and illegitimacy are shown to have devastating effects on childhood well-being, male motivation, and female sexuality.

Q: Why was Father Figure made?
A: Father Figure was made primarily to help men understand the driving forces behind
family destruction and what little they can do about it, short of organizing major socioeconomic and political movements. Many men confronted with divorce are bewildered by their predicament and maddened by the ensuing outcome, an outcome largely predetermined for them. The end result increases the likelihood of childhood malaise, male demoralization, and female promiscuity which all feed the devolution of society.
