A tender portrait of a seemingly elusive father is told through the memories of his daughters.
A bold short film with an original score and sound design by Rosalind Hall (THE SILENT EYE)
Papa sits within a larger creative project where I am exploring changing and challenging the quite common narrative of the neglectful father figure in indigenous communities. I really wanted to focus on, and simplify, those larger questions in an unconventional documentary setting. The full extent of the project will eventually include photography and future film works, but this first instalment is deliberately quiet and mediative.
