Daughters Impact Screening

May 31st at 5:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Philadelphia Film Festival Logo

Before heading to The Roots Picnic, spend an early afternoon viewing Daughters, A documentary. Join us on Friday, May 31st, for an Impact Screening of the Sundance Festival Favorite and Audience Choice Award-winning film Daughters, directed by Natalie Rae and Angela Patton. The film was produced by Philadelphia’s own Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter alongside Kerry Washington, Joel Edgerton, and Jessica Seinfeld, to name a few. The Daughters team is excited to screen the film on Friday and end our weekend at The Roots Picnic with all of you.

This feature documentary follows four young girls preparing for a special Daddy Daughter Dance with their incarcerated fathers as part of a unique fatherhood program in a Washington, D.C. jail. For most daughters, the dance will be the only time they can touch or hug their fathers during sentences, some of which are as long as 30 years.

Doors open at 5:00 p.m. at The Bourse Theater, the program will begin at 5:30p.m. and the film starts at 6:00 p.m. sharp. Black Thought will introduce the film, and co-director Angela Patton and lead producer Lisa Mazzotta will participate in a brief moderated Q&A session hosted by Christopher S. Gunter, MS, Capital One’s Corporate Social Responsibility Strategist, Community Builder, and Strategic Grantmaking Professional.

The screening is free, but we invite you to support our impact campaign, which benefits girls impacted by the criminal justice system. We can achieve more with partners; your involvement is crucial in creating meaningful change.

Seating is limited; RSVP is required.

We thank our partners: Girls For A Change, Bourse Theater, Producer Hallee Adelman, Two One Five Entertainment, and Capital One.
