Dear Philadelphia (2021)



Premiered at Sundance 2021
Winner: Best Short Documentary - Blackstar Film Festival (Oscar qualifying)
Winner: Vimeo Staff Pick Award - Blackstar Film Festival

‘Dear Philadelphia introduces three African American fathers - Josh, Mel and Dot - who with the help of their family, friends and faith unravel the incomparable partnership of forgiveness and community. Whilst walking through the intimate truths of life that can sometimes become a barrier, the film is a reminder that hope can be found in all situations. From its choice of colour to the music, the film poetically explores the beauty and strength in the often demonised North Philadelphia neighbourhood.’
