LETTER TO DAD

2010, 40’, documentary, colour, HD

 

“Hey Dad. You died suddenly.”

The filmmaker, trying to make sense of the way his father chose to die, opens several boxes, all that is left behind. The forgotten photos, letters and home videos take the film back to 1970s Yugoslavia, when his parents became lovers. But the journey through the years, to family members, lost friends and places, reveals the lingering horrors of the recent Balkan wars still tearing people and families apart.

This is a film that, in the most immediate way, questions the individual responsibility of ordinary people caught in the winds of war.
