Fathers Matter, a series of six short films produced by Heartlines is being rebroadcast on SABC 2 in Jube to encourage South Africans to focus on fatherhood.
The films, which were first released last year, will be screened on Saturdays June10 (In Time & Everything a Boy could Want) , 17 (Manskap & Family Portrait) and 24 June (Melodi & Airwalker) at 8:30pm.
There will also be “loads of events and conversations happening on television and radio about fatherhood in South Africa” during this time, says Heartline’s Nkosinathi Sixabayi in a special newsletter.
Churches and communities are urged to watch the films and make use of the film discussion guide (which you can download here) which has been designed to facilitate group conversations.
The films are being aried in June as bothYouth Month and Father’s Day fall in this month “which makes it the perfect time for us to have important conversations about how fatherhood in South Africa is impacting young people”, says Nkosinathi.
“During this time, we want to get our society talking about WHY fathers matter, what’s stopping fathers from showing up for their children, and what we can do about it. We believe that with God’s help, we can change the story of fatherhood in South Africa – for the good of children, women, and men themselves,” he says.
