In a Perfect World

D: Daphne McWilliams | USA | 75 min | Regional Premiere

What it is like to be a male child raised by a single mother?  The inspiration for the film came from the director’s own relationship with her son who has had a largely absentee father. Over the course of several years, Daphne McWilliams began interviewing men about the relationships they had with their mothers and, to varying degrees, their absentee fathers. At the same time, she was raising her own son, Chase, as a single parent. She noticed that as Chase entered his teens, their relationship took a dramatic turn as he began coping with his most formative years and becoming an adult without the consistent presence of his own father. McWilliams realized it was time to turn the camera on her own family to document her son’s painful abandonment issues while seeking to help him express and understand his feelings. Both a deeply personal and introspective portrait of a modern family as well as a probing cinematic essay examining one of society’s major ailments.
