There’s always the first time you’re called Daddy. It’s more than just a question of age. Leather Daddies, Daddy Bears and Daddies that don’t fit into the usual categories. The ten men over forties interviewed and shot on super 8 are gay men based in San Francisco who practise and talk about sex and their bodie openly and meaningfully. Monogamy and open relationships co-exist in San Francisco as they do everywhere, but nowhere else has so many polyamorous men, men who embrace multiple love in their own personal way within the community. ? It’s not just Daddy/Son, there are also guys in a number of relationships, or men in triads or foursomes.
Antonio Da Silva was in town for the first time to attend Frameline San Francisco LGBT film festival 2013. By the second day of the festival, it became clear to him that he had to shoot some of the men who were filling the iconic Castro cinema and celebrating the final overturn of Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage.
This is a film not just for Daddies and Daddy lovers, but for all the family.
