About the project
LOCKLINEA father a son! Story of many...story of one! What can you learn from your child on your journey of life!

WHAT IS THIS STORY?

"Father of a Broken Angel" is our upcoming documentary film. In this film, we have revealed what is it for a man to have a fully handicapped child, what he learns from him? How he transforms from a sharp businessman to a compassionate advisor for the families with handicapped children and how he transforms the experience he had with his child into a theater piece.  

Father of A Broken Angel tells you this very common and also very personal story of many people from the father's side.  

 

WHY WE WANT TO MAKE THIS DOCUMENTARY?

Life with a handicapped child has been already narrated many times in films, books, tv. Most of the time we have heard these stories from mothers side because mothers can talk about their thoughts and emotions openly. The first time a father speaks openly and honestly about his thoughts and emotions. He also makes a theater piece from his experience with his son to reach out to other the fathers to tell them that they are not alone. 

 

WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?

This story must be told more people. Not just in Holland but all around the world, especially where having a handicapped child is a taboo. Where men won't talk about it, have to hide what they feel. Create awareness, make the subject discussable.

Quote that inspired the maker

You're barely able to eat, barely to drink, barely to sleep ... if this is going to be your life Jasper ... go. Then you will have it better elsewhere than you will have here ... Give me one more hug ... then go.
