My Father and Me  

Synopsis

Nick Broomfield has often implicated himself in his filmmaking with honesty  and candor, yet never has he made a movie more distinctly personal than this complex and moving film about his relationship with humanist-pacifist father, Maurice Broomfield.

In October 2020 the V&A Museum will celebrate his factory worker father’s vivid, often lustrous images of industrial post-WWII England, which inspired Nick’s own filmmaking career, while notably outlining a marked difference in their outlook, with Nick’s less romantic, more left-wing political identity stemming from his Jewish mother. A memoir and tribute, in its intimate story My Father and Me takes an expansive, philosophical look at the twentieth century.
