Dad (12+)

Russia, 2020, colour, 76 min.
Director: Valeriya Gai Germanika
The father of the Director Valeria Gai Germanica, the 91-year-old Alexander Brown, is deeply saddened by the death of his beloved wife. He goes on a summer trip together with the family of his daughter. Together they fly to the sea, and little by little the trip to Italy and Greece takes on the scales of an ancient tragedy: mortal danger and miraculous escape; translation difficulties and generational conflict. A person's life sometimes turns out to be a journey full of emotions that can hardly be borne.
