My Father

An adolescent girl fears that her father is going to kill her.

Director’s Vision

“My Father” came about through my fascination to explore the pure feeling of this situation. Just the thought of a parent of mine wanting to kill an adolescent version of myself made me feel trapped and debilitated. Thus, the goal was to bring those feelings to life for the viewer, and do it in the most efficient and engaging way possible. The key to that was the tone and language rooted in the film’s style. Inspired by the works of Bergman and Hitchcock, I felt it would allow me to fully realize the suspense and Freudian concepts within its central dynamic.
