Daddy & Papa is an Emmy-nominated one-hour documentary that opens a candid window on the personal, cultural and political implications of gay fatherhood. From surrogacy, foster care and interracial adoption, to the complexities of gay divorce and legal battle around gay parenting this Sundance Film Festival favorite presents a revealing look at some of the gay dads who are breaking new ground in the ever-changing landscape of the American family. Daddy & Papa utilizes an accessible, first-person narrative to create an intimate portrayal of gay dads, following the filmmaker and his partner on the their rocky, and sometimes amusing, journey to parenthood.

Along the way, we meet other gay dads: a single father confronting the isolation of raising at-risk kids in a gay, and largely childless, neighborhood; a healthcare worker battling Florida state law to adopt the child who for five years has called him "Dad"; and a couple and their nine-year-old daughter, whose biggest problem is not that her parents are gay, but divorced. Daddy & Papa takes an unflinching look at some of the complex issues surrounding gay fatherhood, including the effect of sexual orientation on children, challenge of white gay men raising African-American kids, changing relationship of gay fathers to the gay community and real impact on children of being raised without a mother. In the process, it reveals a new picture of what it means to be a family.
