Description of the film: “Daddy” is a story about a young girl catching her father packing his bags to run away from his abusive, alcoholic wife and the trials and tribulations that follow.
Director biography: “Daddy” marks the first directorial collaboration between Nathanael Vass and Leah Barley. Nathanael is a Vancouver-based filmmaker known for his psychological horror films (O for a Thousand Tongues, Silk) and for his dreamy, love-infused music videos (Natalie Moon – “Sweetness in the Shadows”, Skye Wallace – “Scarlet Fever”). Leah is a folk-rock singer/songwriter with over a decade of performing under her belt, performing for festivals such as JUNOfest and CBC Music in Vancouver. A musician with a keen ear for storytelling, “Daddy” is her directorial debut and the spark of a love for a new medium in which to tell her stories.
