Portrait of a Dead Father
director: Pavla Sobotová
original title: Portrét mého mrtvého otce
country: Czech Republic
running time: 9 min.
synopsisA film about how a person remains within a person. A portrait of a father and daughter and their relationship. About the imprint our parents leave on us, and how to come to terms with their influence. About how much they influence our lives and the extent to which we are like them. Parental love is love for a child and a continuation of oneself. How much can we change this and what must we sacrifice in order to break free from this mutual dependency and to live and define our own lives?
"What am I? Defined in opposition to you? Isn't this film another provocation? An incessant struggle?"
