Created by CSU East Bay students Da’Ryn Merriwether and Keiko, Daddy Issues explores the topic of fatherlessness through the interviews of several dynamic black women who did not grow up with their fathers. This short was inspired by the dear Gerald project–I sent a call for submissions to Keenan Norris, novelist and professor at CSU East Bay, and Da’Ryn decided that instead of writing a letter, she wanted to create a documentary. I make a few (sometimes acting silly) appearances in the film. Enjoy!
