The complicated psychology of father-son relationships is explored in Questions for My Father, a video that features a series of portraits of men (including the filmmakers themselves) who address the camera and pose questions to their fathers that they never before asked.

Themes of regret, sexuality, and depression emerge from the questions, which range from amusingly mundane to deeply personal. (12 mins., video)

Jean Dubuffet, Vaches au pre (Cows in a meadow), 1954
