Savremena arhitektura u Irskoj dostiže svoj vrhunac ranih 1960- ih a jedna od najistaknutijih figura bio je Robin Voker (Robin Walker). Četvrt veka nakon Robinove prerane smrti, njegov sin, Sajmon, takođe arhitekta osvrće se na očevu zaostavštinu. Talking to my Father prati dva glasa koji pripadaju različitim epohama, a oba se bave time kako Irci doživljavaju arhitekuru koja okružuje njihove živote. Režiser Sé Mery Doyle, dozvoljava građevinama da govore za sebe i vodi nas na putovanje sa Sajmonom u njegovoj potrazi za očevom arhitekturom kao i za odgovorom zašto je Robin odustao od arhitekture na vrhuncu karijere i počeo da se udaljava od svoje dece.

„Talking to my Father” je osvojio prvu nagradu za dokumentarni film o arhitekturi koju dodeljuje Društvo istoričara arhitekture. (Society of Architectural Historians), vodeće međunarodne organizacije koju čine kritičari, pisci, istoričari, predavači arhitekture, sa sedištem u Čikagu.

Simon Walker će lično predstaviti film na BIF-u i odgovarati na pitanja posle projekcije.

Modern architecture in Ireland reaches its highpoint in the early 1960s and one of its most celebrated and influential figures was Robin Walker. A quarter of a century after Robin’s premature death, his son and, architect Simon addresses his father again and considers the legacy of his life’s work. Talking to my Father features two voices from two eras who are each concerned with how we (as an Irish) nation understand the architecture that surrounds or lives. The director, Sé Merry Doyle, allows the buildings featured to speak for themselves, and takes us on an exploration with Simon in his search for Robin’s architecture of place. Sé Merry Doyle follows Simon as he tries to understand why Robin quit architecture at the the height of his fame and began to exclude his children from his world.

Talking to my Father won international first prize for documentaries about architecture from the Society of Architectural Historians, which is the leading international organization of critics, writers, historians and teachers of architecture, based in Chicago.

Simon Walker will present Talking to my Father in person at BIF, and take questions after the screening.
