A head full of doubt documentary

A Head Full of Doubt

By documentary, news

We are excited to add the powerful documentary A Head Full of Doubt to our catalogue in the lead up to MIPCOM.

In what has been a year of bad news stories, A Head Full of Doubt, set in Chicago, offers hope to a generation of kids desperate for direction and encouragement.

In Chicago, 2008 was a violent year culminating with high murder rates, escalating gang activity and low graduation rates. This set the stage for what is best described as the city’s tipping point.

On Chicago’s south and west sides a large percentage of boys grow up lacking fathers figures. Enter Tony DiVittorio, a high school councillor, who set out to lead a generation of youth by creating a male character development program called B.A.M. (Becoming A Man).

His goal was to build men of integrity by focusing on core values like respect, responsibility and self-determination.

Over seven years, filmmaker Jason Weisner began documenting the B.A.M program and Tony DiVittorio’s personal story of empowerment, which continues to help young men today.

What emerged is an inspirational documentary about a generation of youth who are desperately searching for someone to believe in them.

Now available for worldwide release, A Head Full of Doubt is a poignant reminder of the power of humanity.
