Growing up gay in a small town in France, Édouard endured the violence and homophobia of his alcoholic, right-wing father, a factory worker. In 2000, his father suffered an accident in the workplace which left him bedbound and on morphine for the pain. Now, Édouard confronts his father, who, barely fifty years old, can hardly walk or breathe. Uncovering a startling connection between political decisions and his father’s broken body, Édouard’s anger transforms to compassion. His father’s capacity for violence appears to be the product of years of social brutality. Louis sets about rewriting the recent social and political history of France, exposing how the consequences of neoliberal ‘reforms’ inflicted on the lives of workers are lived out in their own bodies.
WHO KILLED MY FATHER is an intimate declaration of love from son to father and a defiant call for social justice.
