“All about my father” is a personal documentary about a well respected medical doctor and transvestite in a small christian town in norway, directed by the one person most likely to convey his story with warmth, humor and irony: his son. Armed with a small video camera and the family’s super 8mm films, he sat out to make a personal portrait of his transvestite father. 
Contrary to my father’s idea that this film would promote him as a colourful and different person who uses all his time and effort to combat the conservative bureaucracy, I made a deeply personal portrait of him where his transvestitism and strong self-realization forms the basis of the film.
