LETTER TO A FATHER

Edgardo Cozarinsky

The detective always ends by finding out something about himself… A filmmaker in search for his father’s traces uncovers unexpected links with a genealogy made of breaks. His grandfather – one of the “Jewish gauchos” at the end of the 19th century… His father – a navy officer. Himself – writer and filmmaker. Buenos Aires, Entre Ríos, Paris and Japan are the stages of an inquiry unveiling layers of secrets and tacit agreements. At the end he finds himself telling a family story far from all certainty, but deeply rooted in Argentine history. A film about the contradictions underlying all identity. CARTA A UN PADRE is one of Cozarinsky’s personal pieces, the search of a son following in his father’s adventurous traces, a story of emigration, Jewishness, new countries and old fears, the sea, of family, of memory and forgetting. A tender, speculative, observant and wonderfully rich letter to a long lost father.
