Synopsis

Captured on a camera phone as it happens, FATHER UNKNOWN is the true story of a man’s struggle to face the emptiness he carries inside. Disconnected from the people closest to him and haunted by the secrecy in his family, he records his desperate search for connection on a journey with the father he's never truly known. FATHER UNKNOWN is an uplifting true story that brings audiences along for the ride on a deep and powerful journey in search of connection, identity, and healing.

dIRECTOR'S STATEMENT


Director David Quint is often joined by his father for Q&As following FATHER UNKNOWN screenings. These audience conversations last over an hour with numerous people sharing reflections from their own lives. Many have contacted us afterwards with their experiences of seeing the film:

"I knew I was watching the events in real time…I was a participant in the journey rather than an outsider."

"I've never felt so close to a movie. It was so completely genuine, it was almost shocking. FATHER UNKNOWN is about the experience. This is so new to the world."

"I am so deeply moved by the film, humbled, awestruck."

"I don't think there was a dry eye in the theater."

"FATHER UNKNOWN caused us to look within and had us talking about it the rest of the evening."

The film is inspiring audiences to deeply examine their own lives, their families, and their relationships. Internal shifts are transforming homes and communities.

This transformative story is a significant catalyst for conversation across a broad audience, and its impact is growing exponentially.
