SHORT FILM: ‘Father’ by Fumi Gomez

Father is the story of Marcos (Juan Echenique), who after leaving his daughter Joanna (Kheira Bey) and her mother to follow his music career, finally finds the nerves to re-gain contact with her.

Fumi Gomez is a freelance film and theatre director. She’s worked in the performing arts industry for the past decade. Her career started off with her collaboration with the Spanish company Colmena Teatro. It has evolved from there, and crossed frontiers until the present day. She is co-founder of Horatio Productions, specialised in new writing for science fiction theatre and film.

She is also the founder of Making Films, which Father was made through. This is a group of professional filmmakers who tell relevant stories, no matter the budget, with a focus on storytelling. It is a bi-monthly guerrilla film challenge and filmmaking community. The group challenges filmmakers to make a film in one month on a zero budget. The films that complete the challenge within the deadline are screened at the end of the month at a London venue. Making Films has over 1000 members and has curated and screened 44 short films in 2018. Supporters include: Candid Arts Trust, Sci-Fi London, and Raindance.
