5 PICTURES OF A FATHER  //  5 Fortaellinger om en far (Orig.)

DIR: Nadia Josefine El Said
2010 / Denmark / 22 min

Film unavailable :-(

Sorry, this film is no longer available.

On a frozen field a child tells about a felt-tip man with a beard and a bit of hair on his head. A musician lives a life without music. A prison officer collects model trains and longs for the open oceans. A Soviet cosmonaut sits in his space capsule in eternal orbit. And a guardian angel dances in the sky.

In a sequence of tales 5 girls and women present their pictures of a father. The notions of absence and presence, longing and dreams tie the five stories together. Through staged tableaux, drawings, graphics and archive material the stories emerge.

Nadia Josefine El Said is graduated animation director from The National Filmschool of Denmark.
