Raak mij aan! Touch me!

Pools, boats, lounges, arcade games, a summer resort. A young girl bonds with her father.

Preteen Sophie and her thirty-year-old father Calum go on vacation at a seaside resort in Turkey. They go scuba diving, play pool, soak up the sun and laze around. In intimate closeups, we see Calum and Sophie applying cream on each other’s bodies, practising self-defence techniques or filming one another with a camcorder. Days go by, and soon Sophie has to return home to her mother in Scotland.

Charlotte Wells’ autobiographical first feature Aftersun is a tender, deeply felt portrait of this fleeting period, framed through Sophie’s fragmented recollections as an adult. The genuine warmth between father and daughter is punctuated by small frictions that erupt like drops of ink in water, lending their relationship a trace of melancholy.
