FLAT DADDY is an 82-minute long documentary that takes its name from the life-sized cardboard cutouts many military families employ to ease the pain of separation while a loved one is serving overseas. The film follows four very different families over the course of a year — including one from Caribou, ME — to explore the impact of war and deployment on those left behind.
FLAT DADDY will screen on Sunday, July 15th at 3pm and again on Friday, July 20th at 3pm at the Railroad Square Cinema in Waterville. The filmmakers will host a Q&A after the July 15th screening and will be joined by special guests, including representatives of the Maine National Guard Family Program.
