Synopsis

Finding Aumont Whitaker
A short documentary film by Leslie Cunningham

At age 22, Dina learned her real father was a postman from Compton, California. Her mother told her he was married and Dina shouldn't interfere. She didn't. Dina gave up searching and convinced herself she was his unknown or unwanted child.

More than two decades later, when a filmmaker friend helps Dina find her sisters on Facebook, they set out on a 3-day trip across the country to surprise them. An emotional journey filled with sorrow, love and laughter, Finding Aumont Whitaker will uplift hearts and bring families closer together. Runtime: 14:02
