NEW SHORTS: Father
Mon 9 Jan 20:30 Hackney Picturehouse
The father is traditionally the bedrock of the family, but in this programme, he falters as he navigates daily life and protecting his loved ones. This programme dips into the worlds of bare-knuckle fighting, stock-car racing, altercations in supermarket car parks and the lonely journey of a cab driver trying to reconnect with his kids. Watch out for Dom McKellar in a Dave Eggers adaptation.
