Finding Fathers’ directed by Matt Kowalczuk is a film, dance and music journey exploring the intimate stories of real people seeking out their birth fathers. 

In 2022 the research and development session was carried out based on two men’s real experiences. The work was developed by exploring ways to develop choreography movement and extracting filmed interviews based on the themes of fatherlessness and masculinity in the 21st century.

Please note that themes in this work may be triggering for some people.
