Scenes with my father

by Biserka Suran, Netherlands, 2022, 47'

Greek Premiere

In ‘Scenes with My Father’ filmmaker Biserka Šuran, takes her father on a trip down memory lane in which she revives scenes from their country of birth, former Yugoslavia.

Memories are reflected in cinematic decor sets in which they converse about nationality, identity, love, dreams and regrets.

Love letters, archive material and anecdotes from family members give the audience an insight on the trials and tribulations the family experienced when they were forced to leave their home country.

This symbolic road-trip therapeutically heals wounds from the past as the director and daughter Biserka creates space to relate to her father’s experience and inevitable choices. The result is an inspiring conversation that many viewers might like to have with a parent.
