ME AND ME DAD

ME AND ME DAD

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
A funny and honest history told by one of film’s true survivors, ‘Me and Me Dad’ is a portrait of one of the most influential British filmmakers of the last 40 years. But most of all it is a story of a father and daughter finding their way back to each other through the language of film. Made when approaching his 80th year, the brilliant and inspiring director John Boorman is one of the last great mavericks, having directed over 17 films including 'Point Blank', 'Excalibur' and 'Deliverance', as well as making numerous documentaries and writing several books. ‘Me and me Dad’ is a revealing study of this difficult, charismatic and elusive man by one who should know him best: his daughter Katrine. Katrine, who previously had never held a camera, follows and films her father over a period of four years. Vulnerable, cross, funny, nostalgic, wild and wise, Boorman chronicles his adventures in Hollywood but he also talks with great honesty about his childhood, his marriages, his passion for nature, his need for danger and why film is the only thing he ever truly loved. What begins as a study of Boorman becomes the story of the Boorman family. A vivid narrative of a perfectly imperfect family emerges and we see the chaos and difficulties his chosen path imposed on those closest to him.
