First Cut - My Father The Mercenary
Friday, 26th June 2009
7:35pm to 8pm
First Cut is a an occasionally recurring documentary strand showcasing bold, bright and original films by up-and-coming directors.
Philip Sessarego was a soldier of fortune who had fought in 80s Afghanistan, taken part in a coup in the Maldives and trained the Sri Lankan army. In 1993, he walked out on his family and was, apparently, killed soon after. His daughter, Claire, was just 14 years old at the time. She thought she'd never see him again but, much to the family's astonishment, he appeared on television in 2001, using an assumed name, as an expert pundit on the mujahaddin.
Then, in November 2008, a body was found decomposing in a garage in the Belgian city of Antwerp and, using DNA samples taken from Claire, the corpse was confirmed as that of her father. This emotional film, directed by James Ross, follows Claire and her brother Paul, as they travel from their home in Hereford (home of the SAS) to Belgium to collect their father's remains, and to uncover the extraordinary story of who he was and how he died.
