Director Justin Hunt will take questions after the screening of his documentary Absent.

The documentary focuses on social issues around fatherless children and will screen at One Church Perth on Seagrove Boulevard in an event hosted by i60 Community Services on June 29.

i60 program development manager Trish Botha said the free screening followed the recent launch of their ‘MAN UP!’ rites of passage program with male students at Clarkson Community High School.

She said while they would target youth workers and mentors, it could impact on many people and the event was open to the general public.

Mr Hunt will participate in a 10-minute question and answer session following the screening, and there will be a sausage sizzle beforehand.

Attendees will be able to make donations at the end of the night, with proceeds going to the Dads4Kids Fatherhood Foundation.

To attend, call i60 Community Services on 9304 4600 or Trish on 0406 856 459.
