Daughter (Dcera)

Daria Kashcheeva
Czech Republic, 2019, 15 min.

In No dialogue with No dialogue subtitles.

Should you hide your pain? Close yourself inside your inner world, full of longing for your father’s love and its displays? Or should you understand and forgive before it is too late?

Director's Statement

My film’s key theme is the father-daughter relation, a very personal and important topic to me. To draw viewers into my world of memories, I made the film with a hand-held camera feel, big close-ups, low depth of field and a lot of motion, lending it an authentic immediacy and a para-documentary nature. To show the characters’ emotions with facial expressions, I paint the eyes directly on the puppets’ faces, giving them a lot of life and an intensive expression of the characters’ emotions.
