We aim to explore what it means to live with authentic masculinity as we step into the many aspects of our world today. The idea for our films was born out of a shared desire to see quality content address a wider landscape than what most would assume to be “Christian” or “masculine” or any other of a slew of catchphrases. The name “And Sons” calls upon that history of apprenticeship, of following in our fathers' footsteps, of a shared experience at some core level. Because we are all sons.
