A Zoom Q&A with director Andrei Dăscălescu, recorded on Nov. 14 at 12:30pm PT, is available on ARCS YouTube and on their ARCS Facebook page.

As they prepare to become parents, Andrei and his girlfriend are both looking for role models they never had in their own lives. (Andrei's father left long ago to become a monk on Mt. Athos, in Greece.) Holy Father presents a story of reconciliation, taking care of unfinished business, parenthood, and healing from wounds from growing up in a broken family. The pair are intent on rewriting their history and breaking the pattern to make sure their traumas aren't passed to their children.
