A documentary by Josselin Gordijn & Jet Verheijen

Renée was thirteen years old when her father (age of 51 at the time) was diagnosed with a form of dementia. A time of changes began and hit rock-bottom when her father Jan Willem wasn’t able to live at home anymore. Renée is now almost sixteen years old and it seems like her father won’t be able to celebrate her birthday with her.

The documentary Papa paints an intimate portrait about losing communication between an aging Renée and her father, who is losing himself more everyday.
