Actor Omar Epps is stepping behind the camera in an effort to help change the narrative placed on single fathers.
Epps is the executive producer of the documentary DADDY DON’T GO
The film follows the lives of four disadvantaged fathers (Alex, Omar, Roy and Nelson) and their trip through Fatherhood. Epps teamed up with acclaimed filmmaker Emily Abt who filmed this heartfelt project over a two year span, documenting the struggle and consequential perseverance these fathers had to face.
The film, perfectly set in NYC, where 50% of African American children and more than 40% of Latino children grow up fatherless.
