“Daddy”, a video collaboration between musician Leah Barley and filmmaker Nathanael Vass, is a narrative exploration of how domestic violence can be perpetrated against men. Told from the point of view of a young girl witnessing her mother’s physical and emotional abuse of her father, it’s the first in a series that explores the lasting trauma of intergenerational violence and the long journey of healing. The follow-up film, “Rise” (based on a song from Leah’s upcoming album), will pick up the girl’s story in her teenage years as she faces challenges in the foster care system and living homeless in Vancouver.
