Portrait of my father

by Juan Ignacio Fernández Hoppe / Uruguay / 2022

20:00 / Sala Zitarrosa


My father was found dead at the beach with psychotropic medication among his things. Despite suicide being a possibility, my mother -a psychiatrist- deemed performing an autopsy unnecessary. I was eight years old. Thirty years later, I embark on an obsessive quest for the truth, regardless of oblivion, shame, and my mother’s misgivings.
