Solo Parent


Solo Parent follows in the footsteps of Sololand investigating another dimension of solo living.

More and more men and women are choosing to raise children alone, or even to adopt. Reconciling work and family, preserving intimacy, cultivating other relationships...the social innovators in this film juggle their time without the fall-back position that having a partner affords.

Shot in Canada, the United States and Sweden, the inspiring stories from these solo parents are put into a wider context of social and economic change by several outstanding professionals who have studied the increasing trend toward solo parenting: Bernard Arcand, anthropologist; Ann Crittenden, author of the ''The Price of Motherhood''; Brook Noel, author of the ''The Single Parent's Resource Book and Barbara Hobson, author of ''Making Men into Fathers''.
