Event Details

A young film director returns to Venezuela, inspired to make a film based on his father’s life in the Amazon jungle. He casts Father to play himself. What starts as an act of love and ambition — filmmaking to more deeply understand the self, and the other — spirals into a process which confronts Father’s struggles with addiction and his life devoid of his son.

El Father Plays Himself holds a steady lens to the way the act of cinema unearths, binds, heals and destroys.
