This is a project I need to accompany with additional reflections. On the third semester at the university we got an assignment to make a personal documentary film. This has been the most insightful and hardest process of filmmaking.

What is the most important story of my life? I am still not sure about it, but at least I chose one of them. I chose to investigate my father. I talked with my half brothers and sisters and mother, to find out what kind of person he is. I have grown up with my mother and grandmother, as a single child. This film is about my personal truth of my father, with the help of the siblings and mother. I wanted to know what does it mean to have a father, what actually happened and does he care. I got a little bit closer than I was before but not everything was answered. And I accept it.

I am thankful for all the family members who were willing to meet with me, including the father himself. And I am happy about my attentive and talented post-team. I learned that all great stories come from very personal reasons and from the courage to face them. Though this private detective documentary will stay for a small circle of my family, I am curious to see how does it mature in time. I do believe that my story is relatable for many others who have grown up in families similar to mine.
