GREAT ARE THE EYES OF A DEAD FATHER
Afsaneh Salari / Germany, France, Iran / 2023 / 29 min / World Premiere
Loss and longing in a sensual tale of nostalgia for a place you’ve never really been to.
At a first glance, nothing seems to be missing in the life of Patrick Navai—painter and poet—his wife Sylvie, and their musician son, Yvan. They live in a medieval village near a big & misty forest in France. Their daily routine is filled with enchanting hours of painting, playing music, reading poetry, and long family walks up the green hills. However, an unfulfilled desire for belonging echoes in every corner of Patrick’s life.
