About this submission
"A Father's Heart" is a short documentary I am currently working on that poses the question what does it take to be a father? Through interviews and archival footage I hope to tell a truly evocative, funny and heart warming film about my father. The documentary will also chronicle my father's illness after he had a heart attack whilst driving his car.
