I Am Your Father

de Toni Bestard, Marcos Cabotà



The actor who played Darth Vader in the first part the Star Wars trilogy never revealed his face. The only time he actually could have done it, another actor took his place and the life of David Prowse, the man behind the mask of the most famous villain in history, was marked forever. Thirty years later, a young director discovers why the producers made that decision and pays Prowse the homage he deserves.
