This Sunday is Father’s Day. While commercially we celebrate our parents individually solely on two days of the year, we are well aware that every day that our parents are with us is a gift in itself. As we get older and become parents ourselves, we start to understand the inner workings of parenthood. We also become privy to everything that comes along with parenting – the joys, sorrows, societal views, pressures et al.
Producers of the short film Modern Day Dad, R Flavour‘s Jason Quammie and Eugenia Olu-Cole, are taking a poignant look at modern-day black fatherhood. They tackle serious questions in their short film and look to foster a discussion that will go on beyond the screen showing. I took some time to sit down with Jason and Eugenia to ask them a few questions about the project.
