El father como sí mismo
Venezuela, United Kingdom, Italy, United States, 105 min
While Jorge left Venezuela as a child, his father remained there. In a country that he struggles to recognise, the son is now directing a fictional film (La Fortaleza, Jorge Thielen Armand) about the troubled past of this genitor in the illegal goldmines of the Amazonian jungle. With determination, El Father Plays Himself draws a portrait of a complex filial relationship and shifting power balance.
