Daddy And The Warlord
What if your father might not be the hero you always imagined? Clarice Gargard grew up with an idealised image of her father, but unresolved questions about his past now haunt her. Why did he collaborate with three corrupt government leaders in Liberia and with notorious war criminal Charles Taylor? Did his job in communications mean espionage and propaganda? Was he trying to help his country or was he simply seeking power, money and social status? Together with director Shamira Raphaëla, Gargard travels to post-war Liberia to find out the truth about his activities. She interviews her father and his former colleagues and realises that the few answers she gets only make reality more elusive. Postlounge provided the trailer for this impressive documentary about Clarice Gergard's quest.
