My Father’s Damn Camera! | Ta Presneta Ocetova Kamera!
06:40 | Slovenia
A reckless boy in an almost desperate and therefore troublesome way persistently seeks the attention of his father – a photographer. Being confronted with his father’s artistic chaos and his obsessive fascination with photography-life, on his path of growing up these elements eventually become essential for strengthening their father-son bond.
In a story that intertwines hand-drawn and stop animation in collage technique, the author takes his audience on a ride through the archive of Slovenian photographer Dragiša Modrinjak, and at the same time draws from personal experience as a filmmaker and father.
