Farewell to the Father
( Addio al padre )

Sebastiano D'Ayala Valva

English summary
A son is sitting at the bedside of his father, who is approaching the end of his life. Several years after I filmed it, I decided to look back to this crucial image of my existence. It became the starting point of a film addressed to my father as a letter.
He was an architect who dedicated his life to his art, frequently for the sorrow of his loved ones. Between fear and love, admiration rejection, this letter is meant to extend a dialogue after death, in a last approximation to the father, before the ultimate separation.
