MY FATHER AND ME

Both a memoir and tribute, and in its intimate story of one family takes an expansive, philosophical look at the twentieth century itself.

For decades among the foremost names in documentary making, Nick Broomfield has often implicated himself in the filmmaking process with honesty and candor. Yet never has he made a movie more distinctly personal than this complex and moving film about his relationship with his humanist pacifist father, Maurice Broomfield.

In November 2021, the V&A Museum will celebrate the work of Maurice Broomfield, a factory worker turned photographer whose vivid, often lustrous images depicted industrial post-WWII England. Maurice’s photography inspired Nick’s own filmmaking career, yet also notably outlined a marked difference in their outlook, with Nick’s less romantic, more left-wing political identity stemming from his Jewish mother.

My Father and Me is both memoir and tribute, and in its intimate story of one family takes an expansive, philosophical look at the twentieth century itself.
