On this episode of DadPOD you will hear my interview with Marquette Williams. Marquette is a Hollywood filmmaker and his latest work is a documentary called, Fatherhood 101. He interviewed 150 people about fatherhood, being a father, the impact of their fathers on their lives, good and bad dad stories. The movie is scheduled to debut the week before Father’s Day in June. He’s asking for help to get the film distributed as wide as possible. More information about how you can see the film and/or help get this movie viewed.
Marquette Williams/Fatherhood 101.
Marquette Williams filmed a documentary called Fatherhood 101. The movie will hit the public scene the week before Father’s Day, June 2013.
Over the past two years we have been able to interview over 150 fathers. We have worked with several Fatherhood agencies and created an amazing documentary called Fatherhood 101.
My Name is Marquette Williams and I am the director of the documentary “Fatherhood 101,” but more importantly, I am a father. This documentary has been the most eye opening film I’ve ever been a part of. I will forever see my life- as a father- differently.
“Fatherhood 101” explores the meaning of fatherhood by unveiling a multitude of compelling fatherhood philosophies. With the support of riveting statistics of hope and expert testimonials from case workers, lawmakers and agencies, the film examines the dissension between the vital role of fathers in children’s development and the current fatherhood landscape. We follow fathers from all sociocultural backgrounds – including celebrity fathers such as Alan Thicke, Christopher McDonald, Grant Hill, Lance Henriksen, Lee Daniels, Robert Davi, and Tyrese Gibson – as they reveal an intimate side of themselves. Share in their touching childhood stories involving their own fathers, the love and selflessness they continuously give their children, and the hardships they are challenged with as parents.
During the interview we discuss:
- Marquette growing up without his biological father who was a violent man.
- The impact of his step father on bringing Marquette up well and the importance of men stepping into younger men’s lives.
- The reasoning behind the making of this documentary–not a lifetime pursuit but one borne out of seeing a fatherhood conference and the impact it had on him.
- The power of a dad on the home and what he found from people as he gathered the information for this documentary.
I really found Marquette to be a fascinating man and think you’ll really like this interview. Enjoy.
