When did you last talk with your father? Will you ever ask him about those things that hurt you?

In FATHER the reality of life is turned upside down to create an impossible dialogue - the dialogue between a child and a father, which never happened.

You can see the full lenght film at Vimeo. More information about the film is available at FATHER website.

Different interviews are documented and used as original source for the film screenplay. Five animation directors from different countries are invited to interpret one story each in their own animation style. As a result the film incorporates the documentary approach with true creative interpretation.

FATHER is an independent animated documentary film project developed and produced by Compote Collective in co-production with Bonobostudio (Croatia) &Eyecatch Productions (Germany). The project received the Robert Bosch 2010 Coproduction Award.
