With father’s retirement so close, I asked him an obvious question. “What are you going to do after you retire father?” He said, “I have plans that I won’t speak of yet. I am all set.” Then I wondered what he was going to do, and decided to make a documentary tracking him down. That’s how the movie started.
My father was an art teacher at a middle school and he hada lifelong dream; to go to Montmartre Hill and draw. I put him on a flight to Paris for the first time in his life. My heartfelt warm, yet at the same time, I wondered if he was going to be able to sell pictures. However, my father said, “You can’t try to sell your pictures. Someone who likes my pictures will eventually show up.” Will there be someone who likes his pictures? Will my father be able to bring out his passion once again? The second chapter of the life of the head of the house begins on Montmartre Hill, Paris.
