From the director, Justin Hunt:
“The father wound is so deep and so all-pervasive in so many parts of the world that its healing could well be the most radical social reform conceivable.” My friend, Father Richard Rohr, wrote that. Not only here in the West, but across the globe, disengaged fathers are leaving a mark that will forever reshape the future of our planet. You show me a person that is angry, violent, depressed, selfish, sexually immoral, hyper-driven, or one of several other personality types, and I’ll show you a father wound. Nothing is more important to a young man, or a young woman, than a father’s love, respect and acceptance.
And nothing is more damaging than when the question ‘Am I good enough?’ is asked of the father by the child, and the answer is silence.
The Tallahassee Film Festival is proud to present the latest documentary film from the director of American Meth (2008). The director, Justin Hunt, and music supervisor, Michael Davenport are expected to be in attendance after the film for a Q & A session.
Justin Hunt is an award-winning journalist who gave up his days of broadcast journalism to begin his production company, Time & Tide Productions, Inc.
In 2006, he began a 16-month journey in the production of his first feature length documentary, American Meth. The Val Kilmer-narrated film won multiple film festivals around the country, and was a finalist at the Foyle Film Festival in Northern Ireland, an Academy Award Qualifying festival. The movie was released on DVD in early 2008 by Rivercoast Film Distribution, and was one of America’s most rented documentaries that year. It is currently being featured by Cox, Comcast, Time Warner and Bresnan cable networks in their Video-On-Demand menus, placing the movie in more than 50 million homes.
Born in Colorado, Justin spent a majority of his life in New Mexico, as well as several other parts of the country, before recently relocating to Chandler, Arizona. He is the father of two children, a 9-year-old son and a 7-year-old daughter.
