Filmmaker Reda Mustafa (France)
Interview by Jasmina Nevada
-Would you like to tell me a little bit about the short?
It s a family short about a father and his son. The father made a decision because his son is sick and needs new organs and there is no money in the family to help. So the father decides to go into a private clinic to have his organs removed and to raise some cash to give to his sons. He needs to leave behind some 'heritage' – inheritance and wants to leave some money behind by accepting to die..
-This sounds like the character of the father is making a sacrifice in order that he can leave inheritance behind for his sons?
