"One time in a bar very far away,
my Dad saw the most beautiful woman he had ever seen"
Commissioned by the imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival for the Embargo Collective II, Bihttoš is an unconventional documentary that explores the complex relationship between a father and daughter. Through animation, re-enactments and family photos, Writer/Director Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers delves into the dissolution of her parents' mythic love story and how past injustices have coloured her perception of love.
