Metallica frontman to join filmaker for discussion of Absent documentary

On March 3rd, 2011 filmmaker Justin Hunt will be joined by musician-composer Metallica frontman James Hetfield in presenting and discussing the award-winning documentary Absent, exploring the worldwide crisis of absent and disengaged fathers and the negative impact that the "father wound" makes on society. Weaving interviews with participants who speak from observation and personal experience, the film includes on-camera testimony from author John Eldredge, World Champion boxer Johnny Tapia, fitness model Robin Decker and James Hetfield, best known as co-founder of Metallica. "The father wound is so deep and so all-pervasive in so many parts of the world that its healing could well be the most radical social reform conceivable," says Father Richard Rohr, and this film makes a strong case that this issue is central to the human condition. Associate Producer: Tiffany Cromartie. Writer/Producer/Director: Justin Hunt. (US 2010) 89 min. plus discussion.
