All Men Are Sons: Exploring The Legacy of Fatherhood
"All Men Are Sons is thoughtful and layered with emotional subtleties that men rarely express." -Los Angeles Times
From an emotional father/son confrontation about a troubled past, to the birth of a baby, to the loss of a father, All Men Are Sons follows men from diverse backgrounds over the course of two years. The filmmakers then visited the subjects five years after initial filming began. The result is a fascinating longitudinal look at the powerful father/son themes of love, loss and forgiveness. The film features Terry Real, author of The New Rules of Marriage. All Men Are Sons is a provocative film that challenges stereotypes and offers rare insights into a critical but largely unexplored subject: the emotionally rich and complex inner lives of modern men.
All Men Are Sons aired nationally on PBS Stations in 2002, 2003 an 2006
