Welterusten Papa (Goodnight Daddy) (2018 Feature Film)

LOCAL & REGIONAL HISTORY_Cinematographic portrait of various father-daughter relations that shows us an alternative narrative about the presence of fathers in the lives of their daughters and challenges stereotypes about masculinity and fatherhood.

In Goodnight Daddy, a variety of father-daughter stories are portrayed where we experience the dynamics and influences within the relationship. It shows us an alternative narrative about the presence of fathers in the lives of their daughters. As a result, stereotypes about masculinity and fatherhood are challenged. There is the divorced father who only sees his daughter in the weekends. Or the pensioner father who used to be completely dedicated to his work but now, at an advanced age, finds himself dedicated to the education of his youngest daughter. No matter the age gap, profession, or living situation, the love these fathers and daughters have for each other and the bond they share is evident.

Producer Sawita Chotkan dedicates the film to her father who passed away when she was only 16. Bringing back memories brings her father closer again, who is still present as a compass guiding her through life’s choices.
