ISÄN TYTTÖ / Daddy’s Girl

ISÄN TYTTÖ / Daddy’s Girl

Daddy’s Girl is a story about rebellion, growing up, and letting go. The symbiotic relationship between a Turkish father, Cengiz, living in Finland, and his 26-year-old half-Finnish daughter, Melisa, begins to deteriorate when Melisa moves to Turkey to start a life of her own. Cengiz’ inability to deal with Melisa breaking free starts a chain of ambivalent events. A funny, yet somewhat tragic European family tale.

MELISA ÜNERI, born in 1985, was raised in Finland. She received her Master’s degree in 2008 from the University of Exeter. After moving to her father’s homeland, she has been working in Turkish production companies. Daddy’s Girl is her first creative documentary. She is currently developing a humorous interactive documentary project, The Only Slut Around.
