All about my Dad

Documentary essay
Shot in Super 8 & digital

Since I started making films, I had in mind this film I would make with my father, this film that would be about him. I wanted to talk about the past, to heal from it, to save myself from it. I wanted to film him as I like him, that he talks to me, that he tells me his stories. I wanted long walks, his daily life, just to be together. I wanted to go to that place he had been telling me about since I was a child: the mill hill.
Finally, the emergency made me film. Because he was told that he had very advanced throat cancer and that the surgery was scheduled for a month later. Luckily, I had a super 8 film and I was able to film him for a while, before he could no longer speak.
