The found-footage film Fragen an meinen Vater is an imagined dialogue between the artist and his deceased father, the actor Ulrich Mühe. Fragments of various film roles are edited together in an attempt to find answers to questions that weren’t asked while the artist’s father was alive. In five chapters and a prologue, the father defends himself, makes accusations, placates and reassures his counterpart. The resulting mosaic negotiates the fluid transitions between reality and fiction, private life and art.
Shown in German with English subtitles.
