Alt om min Far

Esben Benestad lives as a doctor in a small Norwegian town. He has his own practice, has written two books on sex studies, is a columnist for a men's magazine, and is also active as a liberal politician. In Norway, Esben Benestad is also known in a different identity: as Esther Pirelli, sex therapist and occasional actress. Esben Benestad is a transvestite. With humor, affection and irony, his son draws a personal portrait of this dazzling man, without completely surrendering his talent for self-expression: "My father assumed that this film should introduce him as a colorful and complex personality who spent a lot of time and Spends strength struggling with the cultural bureaucracy. I was more interested in to show the whole personality and not to miss the father-son problem any more than the injuries that his self-realization has left behind on others. The fact that my father is a transvestite forms the basis of my film - it is only the starting point for a somewhat different kind of family saga. It was important to me to show that my family is not unique. There are many families like mine. "(Even Benestad)
