IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE explores identity and legacy in the African-American family, as Grammy award-winning rapper Che ‘Rhymefest’ Smith and his long-lost father reconnect and try to build a new future in Chicago’s turbulent South Side. Himself a child of a broken home, Che hasn’t seen his father, Brian, in over 20 years, and presumes him dead. But after buying his father’s childhood home, Che sets out to find him, and learns that his is now a homeless alcoholic living only several blocks away/ The film offers a probing take on memory and identity in a family two generations removed from slavery as it tracks Che and Brian’s shared journey to create a new legacy for themselves, their community and the next generation of family.
User Reviews: Set against the crumbling landscape of Chicago’s battered South Side, "In My Father’s House" is a year-long journey from homelessness and alcoholism to self-discovery and redemption as Grammy-winning rapper Che "Rhymefest" Smith reunites with his homeless father in a quest to reclaim his neighborhood and discover his true self as a father and son. This amazing, touching, inspiring movie tale is brilliantly woven as the documentary captures hardship, sorrow and joy. This work will have you in tears, rejoicing and contemplating your everyday human interactions. This film brings solace to those in a similar scenario; growing up without a father. I sincerely recommend this film as it is a life changing story and a miraculous cinematic wonder.
