Netflix released a new trailer for documentary My Own Man, which is executive produced by Edward Norton. As you can see from the trailer, Norton also appears in the film.

Netflix announced last month that it would exclusively premiere the film on March 6. It was written, produced and directed by David Sampliner (Dirty Work).

The description is as follows:

When director Sampliner learns he’s about to become a father to a baby boy, he fears he must “man up” and finally embrace the latent masculinity he’s rejected all his life. But as he immerses himself in a strange new world of masculine ideals, including vocal lessons, warrior weekends and hunting, he realizes all roads lead back to his own fraught relationship with his father. Intimate, funny and moving, My Own Man reveals the sometimes painful truths that are often left unspoken between fathers and sons. The film made its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2014.

“We’re proud to be working with Edward Norton and David Sampliner on this film,” said Lisa Nishimura, Netflix VP of Original Documentary and Comedy. “Intensely personal and yet universally relatable, My Own Man is both an exploration of the new masculinity and an examination of age-old differences between fathers and sons.”

“My Own Man is as deeply personal as filmmaking can get. You rarely see an artist document their own personal experience with such candor and simultaneously offer such deep insights into the very universal struggle to communicate within a family,” said Norton. “It’s a film that lies within the emotional spectrum of great drama.”

The film is a Sixteen Tons Production in association with Class 5 Films.
