Un Padre


Grandfather, father, and son. And many unanswered questions. The director paints an intimate portrait of his father, seeking to understand the silence that has defined their relationship. Through a personal, honest and sensitive voice, we observe the emotional complexity of father-son relationships. A personal search that ends up becoming homage to Franco’s victims.
