Questions for My Father
Karl Haendel and Petter Ringbom, 2011
As part of the Wexner Center’s 25th anniversary, The Box is dedicating the entire year of programming to work produced in the Film/Video Studio. Screenings in this free exhibition space for video, located just across from the Wexner Center Store, run continuously seven days a week, the same hours as our ticket office (Mon–Wed: 9 AM–6 PM; Thu–Fri: 9 AM–8 PM; Sat: 10 AM–8 PM; Sun: 11 AM–6 PM).
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)
