About the film

An award-winning feature length documentary inspired by a romantic idea of family legacy, IN MY FATHER’S HOUSE follows acclaimed hip-hop artist Che "Rhymefest" Smith as he decides to purchase his father’s childhood home on Chicago’s South Side and raise his new family in the same house where his father grew up. 

Through this journey, Che realizes the importance of reconnecting with his estranged father who abandoned him twenty five years ago. He finds him hiding in plain sight living as a homeless alcoholic just a few blocks away. While determined to help rehabilitate his father and forge a new legacy for his own young family, Che finds that fatherhood is more complicated than his idealized version initially allowed him to believe.

This powerful story about fatherhood, forgiveness, and personal redemption sparks conversation around critical systemic issues facing our nation today.
