Good Men – A Cinematic Exploration of What It Means To Be A "Good Man"
The Californer/10283399

LOS ANGELES - Californer -- Good Men directed by Bobby Roth has wrapped up production, featuring an impressive list of interviews including: Denys Arcand, John Cho, Peter Coyote, Greg Gorman, Clark Gregg, Taylor Hackford, Hawk Koch, Michael Mann, Tom Morello, Rob Morrow, Lauren Tom, Ming-na Wen and others.

This documentary tackles an immensely important subject that has yet to be explored cinematically in depth from a personal perspective: The struggle of men to "do the right thing" in a wounded patriarchy. Bobby Roth was moved by the birth of his grandson and wanted to celebrate and examine men who support women -men who identify as feminists and are for a just and equal world.

"I have been a filmmaker for over fifty years and the themes of my movies have mostly been about men struggling with their masculinity, men in a personal identity crisis.  I don't exactly know why, but I grew up in the sixties and seventies and was active in both the 'anti-war' and 'free love' movements before I really understood their depth and consequences.  I'm trying to put this all into a social context for future generations, as well as my own understanding." Said Roth about his project.
