OH FATHER, I DON’T WANT TO HATE YOU selected for IDFAcademy Summer School 2019

Dawood Hilmandi is selected with his intimate and personal documentary Oh Father, I Don’t Want to Hate You to participate in IDFAcademy Summer School 2019! Over the course of one week, these international documentary talents will convene in Amsterdam to develop their scripts or rough cuts with hands-on tutoring from industry luminaries.

Confirmed tutors this year include renowned filmmaker Sophie Fiennes and celebrated editor Gladys Joujou.


Years after he ran away from home as a boy to find his freedom in the ‘West,’ an Afghan-Dutch filmmaker goes back to challenge himself and his authoritarian father, questioning him about the notion of freedom.
