Six different films from different genres and genres that revolve around the relationship of children to their fathers. In HOW DO YOU MEASURE A YEAR, a father follows his daughter’s coming-of-age in a video montage of questions he recorded over several years on her birthday. NOIR-SOLEIL shows how the death of a grandfather can affect a father-daughter relationship. The relationship with the father inevitably changes when he is caught in a delicate situation (ECLIPSE) or when the father has a new wife (HEADING SOUTH). A father can put a lot on the line out of love for his daughter (NANTONG NIGHTS), but even a son can risk a leg for a much-coveted record (RUTHLESS).
