Film Premier: “SPIT’IN ANGER: Venom of a Fatherless Son”
Hosted by The Fatherhood Project at Mass General Hospital and The Family Nurturing Center of Mass
“SPIT’IN ANGER: Venom of a Fatherless Son” will premiere at UMASS Snowden Auditorium; 100 William T Morrissey Blvd.
The film addresses the underlying issue of anger that dwells in young black males as a result of not having a nurturing relationship with their fathers. Spit’in Anger was produced by Fathers Incorporated a New York based not-for-profit serving as a national leader in the field of Responsible Fatherhood. The Boston screening is in partnership with The Fatherhood Project at Mass General Hospital and The Family Nurturing Center of Mass. Many are aware of the statistics and poor outcomes related to father absence.  To be sure, while research, books, videos, and blogs about the effects of father absence abound, none are as authentic, inspirational, or heartfelt as a real-life documentary, “Spit’in Anger: Venom of a Fatherless Son.” Unconventional, yet truly transformational, the movie’s raw narrative and expert interviews with Dr. Jeffery Gardere, Iyanla Vanzant, Terrie Williams, Judge Mablean Ephriam, Gary Sheffield and Dr. Jeffrey Shear, reveals how anger is related to growing up without a father and raises the awareness and urgency of healing the effects of father absence.
