In My Father’s House

Set against the crumbling landscape of Chicago’s battered south side, In My Father’s House is a yearlong journey from homelessness and alcoholism to self-discovery and redemption as Grammy-winning rapper Che “Rhymefest” Smith reunites with his homeless father in a quest to reclaim his neighborhood and discover his true self as a father and son. Che, a co-writer on the Academy Award-winning and Golden Globe-winning original song “Glory” from the 2014 motion picture Selma (Best Picture Oscar nominee), is also known for his insightful anthems “Jesus Walks” and “Bullet” and has long found inspiration in issues facing the African-American community, including the growing crisis of fatherlessness and gang violence.
