Two Fathers, 2005, 30 mins. The child star of Born to Film, Raphael, is now a twenty-seven year old who returns to his father’s farm to plant corn and experience fatherhood. Intercut is a film that takes place in the world of Germany in the 1920’s, and Queens, of the 1940’s, as Dr. Ernst Lyon’s remarkable album photographs bring to life worlds long gone. Time is collapsed. Two Fathers is a filmic meditation on life, age, family and death. Completed with support from the George Eastman House program for film preservation.
This boxed set contains Two Fathers and Born to Film.
