Inspired by the feminist tenet, â€œthe personal is political,â€ this autobiographical documentary looks at the filmmakerâ€™s relationships with with his son and father in order to address the root causes of abusive relationships and mental illness in his life and open up possibilities for change. An intensely personal experience, House Devil, Street Angel asks viewers to question notions of abuse, fatherhood and masculinity as multiple generations of fathers and sons pursue their own directions. The themes are bound together through Fivelâ€™s search for answers about the past and a pursuit to embody a different type of man than his father.
