What to do with the objects and personal effects left behind by our loved ones, after their death? This is the question I asked myself following my father’s passing. I searched for the answer by going through his journals, his drawings, his pictures; and by interviewing friends and reading inspirational authors. I never did find the definitive answer to my question but I did what I had to do with his things: I made a film.
I invite you to take a playful stroll with me in my father’s footsteps; the desire to prolong his voice, by adding mine, was the principal motivation behind this short film which blends animation with live filming, and light-heartedness with existential contemplations.
