When he dies, it dies, man/that generation of stamp-collecting, car-washing, handkerchief-ironing, pipe-smoking, Onedin Line-watching, middle class, fondue-eating, God Save The Queening man, man...

An ongoing multi-media project from the brilliant Andrew Kötting (This Filthy Earth; Gallivant), this tribute to a departed father sees the artist transport an effigy of his 'deadad' to locations of emotional importance to them both. What emerges is a psychogeographic portrait of one man, the generation he represents, and the emotional legacy he has bequeathed. Along the way, Kötting discovers some new truths about his deadad - and his deadad's deadad... Shockingly irreverent in places, but breathtaking in its emotional insight and sheer creative bravado, this is a unique meditation on loss from one of the UK's most singular filmmakers.

Screening with Chronicles of Impeccable Sportsmanship Erika Tasini | USA | 2006 | 7 min
