COOL DADDY tells the story of Chase Colman, son of legendary jazz singer Kenny Colman, as he tries his hand at singing in an attempt to reconcile with his ailing father. A story about parents and children, COOL DADDY is also the story of how a certain brand of 1960s cool, at once toxic and alluring, has sustained itself in younger generations.

From the filmmaking team of Sandra Tomc and Roger Larry (Citizen Marc, Crossing), COOL DADDY is directed by Roger Larry (Citizen Marc, Crossing); written by Roger Larry and Sandra Tomc (Citizen Marc, Crossing); produced by Paul Armstrong (Lawrence & Holloman), Roger Larry, and Sandra Tomc; executive produced by Earl Hong Tai (Citizen Marc), Bruce Cowley, and Chris Phillips (Send Us Smokes, Counter Act); and assistant produced by Michael De Santis.
Cool Daddy was funded by CBC’s documentary Channel, CMF, and Creative BC.

Launching today in a lead up to the broadcast is ‘Kenny’s Jazz Pad’, an immersive and interactive site where you can find out more about COOL DADDY. It features extensive video, including a short doc on Kenny Colman’s glamorous career and his celebrity pals; a behind-the-scenes doc where director Roger Larry discusses how masculinity in this movie is communicated from father to son; the trailer; plus Chase Colman performing in an early 1960s style Vegas lounge featured on the site. Funded in part by the CMF POV program. https://kennysjazzpad.com
