EL FATHER PLAYS HIMSELF

An exiled Venezuelan director returns to his collapsing country to make a fiction film based on his own self-destructive father, who is cast to play himself. Father and son venture to the Amazon jungle, revisiting past traumas in a country that offers them no future. Mo Scarpelli’s third feature film explores the ways a son who left and a father who stayed face the pains of their past and the uncertainty of their future, all through the catharsis of making a film.
