El Father Plays Himself (English Subtitles)
El Father Plays Himself • 1h 45m
Dir. Mo Scarpelli - 105min - 2020 - Venezuela, UK, Italy, USA
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 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 ways the act of cinema unearths, binds, heals and destroys.
