Le récit de mon père is created entirely out of raw super 8 images shot by the filmmaker's father in the 1970s and 1980s, when he captured the moments of quiet happiness found in most family footage. This story is his story, the narrative he passed on to his son. Now, the editing process brings the two sides of the same coin face to face.


Philippe Van Cutsem (Brussels, 1965) is an artist, filmmaker and teacher whose work explores history and memory. His films include Nouveau monde (2012) and Demain n'est pas trop tard (2008).
