Life is filled with many moments where we are forced to contemplate what we have done and what we have contributed to the world. Lucia Small's documentary My Father, The Genius examines such subject matter with a very close lens as her subject is her father, Glen Howard Small, an architect who never felt he got the due respect he deserved. We currently have an exclusive clip from the DVD Release of this interesting and thought provoking film.

My Father, The Genius Exclusive Clip

Synopsis:

When estranged father, dreamer, and visionary architect Glen Howard Small bequeaths his daughter the task of writing his biography, she answers instead with a provocative film about his precarious career and thorny private life. At 31, Small was a rising star. At 61, he can barely pay his bills. Filmmaker Lucia Small digs deep to explore the delicate tension between her father's obligations to family and his long passion to "save the world through architecture."
