In a series of 27 vignettes, the artist offers up memories of his father who died in June 2017. Using a mix of family footage (including two catastrophic moves, the last to a nursing home), snapshots and found footage, a portrait emerges of a genial ghost father, haunted by a war that sent his own father to a concentration camp, and which finally impelled his own move to Canada.
