A Letter To My Father

A Letter To My Father

A LETTER TO MY FATHER deals with the relationship of a father and son, questioning years and layers of communication problems. Namely, the son (Milivoj, 44) cannot get rid of the fear that he is his father's (Mate, 70) faithful copy and that his father's life is a projection of his future. Desire to prove himself superior drives the son to make an amateur video compromising his father and proving that he is a much better person than his father. The father starts defending himself against the accusations presented in the son's video letter, justifying his acts to the surrounding, neighbors, friends, etc. The Father retells their family problems and his view of the son's video letter to the community he lives in.
