Long Lost Father

Long Lost Father is a 2014 short drama film, written by C. John Archer and directed by Belgian actor and filmmaker Vincenzo De Jonghe. It premiered in October 2014 as part of anthology short collection, Follow: Tall Tales From a Small City, at the International Flanders Film Fest Gent.

The film tells the story of Charlotte (Florence Ordesh) who travels to Gent in order to contact her estranged father (Lucas Tavernier). After falling victim to a crime of opportunity, Charlotte meets the friendly but naive Julie (Charlotte Anne Bongaerts) and the two strike up a friendship.

With Julie’s help, Charlotte is able to make contact with the father she has not seen in many years.

Long Lost Father was the first screenplay I had written, so it was an honour for the film to be selected for production for the Follow anthology. Due to being a low-budget, short film the brief required the story to be comparatively simple to produce and filmming took place over a few days, on location in the beautiful city of Ghent. I was delighted to be able to work alongside experienced actors and film industry professionals and it certainly sparked an interest in exploring further writing opportunities in film.
