The Girl Dads documentary was created to provide a platform for African American Dads to discuss and express the love that a father has for his daughter, and the importance of their presence in the black home. This film takes a deeper look into the father-daughter relationship, and the dynamics of that bond, as fathers speak of their truths while addressing their fears. The Girl Dads documentary will hopefully start the necessary conversations needed within the black community by addressing how love from a father or lack thereof dictates a woman’s ability to recognize, accept and reciprocate love in a healthy manner.
