Sun kanssa

The old father is lying on the bed, too tired even to talk – it is time to say goodbye. The son tries to understand his father and himself as a middle-aged father of small children. The film examines the constantly changing relationship between a father and son – the intimacy, admiration, difference, silence. After years of distance, he is building a chance for understanding and – from the perspective of the son – some kind of continuity between them. The father, ready to give up everything, is capable of giving his son something that is essential and beautiful in its simplicity. Old photographs and narrow films have been used in the work.
