ABOUT


NOTES TO MY FATHER IS THE TRUE STORY OF LOVE, GRIEF AND RECONCILIATION, BETWEEN A SURVIVOR OF CHILD TRAFFICKING AND HER FATHER.

 

Flooded by past memories of an adolescence spent in an Indian brothel, Ramadevi pens a letter to her father, who unintentionally played a role in his daughter’s trauma.

Though close now; they have never discussed what happened to her as a teenager. Through a touching letter, Ramadevi reaches out to her father. She wants to address and heal the silence between them, in the hope that her own young daughter, is saved from a similar fate.

Notes To My Father is a virtual reality experience which uses a mix of verbatim theatre and documentary storytelling techniques. The lead protagonists are played by a survivor and her father. The film touches on memory and trauma and how these can shape rather than define our lives. It is ultimately a story of survival and an ode to resilience and hope.

Notes To My Father was made as part of Oculus from Facebook's VR for Good creative lab.

It is directed by award winning filmmaker, Jayisha Patel and Emmy Award winning executive producer, Gabo Arora and made in partnership with Oculus, My Choices Foundation and Golden Globe nominated studio, Reel FX.
