Dads movie

Watch DADS: Our modern fatherhood documentary

Streaming on Apple TV+, we’re proud to partner with Imagine Documentaries on DADS – a powerful movie about dads from director Bryce Dallas Howardand her own father, producer Ron Howard, that every dad needs to see.

What it means to be a dad can be complex

‘Dad’ is a role as old as time itself. But times have changed – and so have society’s perceptions of what it means to be a dad (and a man).

DADS explores the complexities of what being a dad means, from starring in the role of caregiver, to moonlighting as a positive role model and  mentor. However dads play their role, one thing is clear: every dad is one of a kind. 

And that care and complexity is exactly what we wanted to capture in this fatherhood documentary.

Why was it so important to make this movie about dads?

We partnered with Imagine Documentaries to produce DADS as part of our commitment to support fathers everywhere and to normalize them as caregivers and communicators. 

We don’t just want to challenge gendered perceptions about men’s role in the family – we want to inspire men of this generation (and the next) to care for themselves and others.

That’s why a percentage of profits from our documentary on dads will support our Paternity Leave Fund and help empower all fathers to care for the people they love.
