Daddy Daddy USA

A Feature film by Pierre Hodgson

Produced by MK2 Films (ex MK2)

Release in France : 05/10/2005

    Synopsis

    “Daddy, Daddy USA” is a travel journal offering a series of encounters with committed activists in small-town USA. It shows a side of this country that Europeans tend to forget.
    By setting out to film a union campaign in a small town in the deep south where unions are practically banned, a filmmaker discovers la persistence of violence and the historic bitterness of this region.
    During the film, he begins a conversation with his father, a former US correspondent during the Martin Luther King era, about the hope that the United States represented for an earlier generation. And, confronted by his son’s puzzlement and his fascination for the active commitment of the Americans he meets, the father ends up expressing his belief in the power of words.
