@hotdocs 2020 “Daddy”

The 2020 Hot Docs Film Festival features the International Premiere of Daddy, which follows American anthropologist, Brendan Cooney, in his new full-time job as a stay-at-home father. As part of the Hot Docs World Showcase programme, Daddy gives audiences an outsider perspective on fatherhood when Brendan turns the ethnographer’s lens on himself to examine his own childhood abandonment in an exploration of fatherhood and a journey to adapt after settling to a new life in a new country. Daddy will be accessible on the new online Hot Docs platform as of May 28, 2020 – June 15, 2020.


@hotdocs 2020 “Shut Up Sona”

“SHUT UP SONA”, like Sona, is laced with sarcasm, wit, and a bite of craziness. “SHUT UP SONA” resonates with every woman’s search for an equal space in a culture ridden with millennia of misogyny. This is a film about music, art, social change, and a clashing of the ancient and the modern. It’s about our right to exist, with a voice.
