Where's Daddy? (2017) Poster

The question 'Where's Daddy?' may sound infantile, but it's as much of an adult question that can be asked, especially when it comes to African-American men and the child support system.

| A Very Powerful Documentary And Definitely A Must See!
Where's Daddy was a very, very powerful documentary as it tackled the realities of African American men and the child support system. It was real, raw and relevant as it addressed perspectives on that system and the sometimes devastating effects and consequences not only for black males but black families in general. The Director, Rel Dowdell, did fantastic job of exploring the legal challenges, cultural issues, social implications and the negative emotional impact on African American children and the challenges that African American fathers face as they try to navigate through the child support system. The unscripted interviews with Celebrities as well as some average everyday people who have been affected by the system gave the documentary a balance authenticity. Another awesome component about the film was that, even though there was a focus on the African American male, it was a documentary that gave perspectives from African American men and women. To add to this, the film educates its viewers about a real issue that brings about a social consciousness that will be beneficial to people of all races, cultures, ethnicities and backgrounds. Kudos to the Director for an awesome job! It was definitely a powerful documentary and definitely a must see!
