Father is a story of a man who has his children taken away from him because of poverty. It is a story about a loser, an outcast, a humiliated man who sets off on foot from his village in the south of Serbia to the capital, from one end of the country to the other, out of protest, dignity, and despair, to make a point about himself and others, ultimately becoming a hero.
|Cast||Goran Bogdan, Boris Isaković, Nada Šargin|
I wanted the film to start as a realistic drama about a bureaucratic and corrupt society, and then slowly turn into a film about a man who, through the mythic journey he embarks on as a loser and an outcast, turns into a hero. Starting as a social drama, the film becomes a fairy tale.
The CEI Award (Central European Initiative), for the film which best interprets contemporary reality and the dialogue between cultures, (3,000 euros) goes to FATHER di Srdan Golubovic.
Režiser skozi potovanje junakov v boju za svojo družino natančno prikazuje krutost našega sveta. Intimen in družbeno posvečen, boleče realističen in poetičen film problematizira vprašanje moči posameznika v sedanjem trenutku.
Jury statement (serbian): Nagrada žirija „Fedeora“ pripala je filmu „Otac“ Srdana Golubovića zbog dramatične atmosfere, odličnog rada reditelja i sjajne glumačke ekipe.
