Paska isä

Risto-Pekka Blom

You come in and ask if something is wrong. The porridge is a bit burnt, I reply. This experimental documentary is a personal narrative from the point of view of a stay-at-home dad. The film represents a new father's viewpoint as a sort of an outsider in the process of giving birth and having a child. The anxiety, desperation and an overdose of family life are illustrated by the use of animated scenes. Though the father and his emotions about fatherhood are in the main focus, he stays in the background as a narrator.

Born: 1970

Risto-Pekka Blom graduated from technical education but never felt motivated to pursue a career as technician. For a few years he was looking for his purpose in life, until in the age of 27 he started a short course of Audiovisual Media and Expression, after which he graduated from Tampere Polytechnic School of Art and Media in 2005. Since then Blom’s video art and experimental short films have been exhibited in festivals and events in over twenty countries. His film Theme Park (2015) has won the Main Prize at Tampere Film Festival and Helsinki Short Film Festival in 2015.
