David Prowse, the actor who played Darth Vader at the first Star Wars Trilogy, never revealed his face during the films. He could have done it only once at "Return of the Jedi", but something happened. Another actor did that sequence and that fact marked David Prowse life for ever. Thirty years later, a young filmmaker discovers why the producers took that decision, and is determined to pay Dave a deserved tribute, almost impossible.Written by

I am Your Father is a great premise for a documentary, but it falls fundamentally short on promises.
Director Cabota, obviously has the passion for this topic, it it well researched, directed with taste, with the cinematography a cut above your average doco.
However the overwhelming drive and expected climax of this film is the re-make of a pinnacle scene in Star Wars. Unfortunately this falls horribly short, and ultimately leaves the audience frustrated.
Although we are treated to seeing Prowes gain some recognition for his work as Darth Vader, and some keen insights into the politics behind the Star Wars franchise, but no matter how well intentioned , or skillfully crafted, this climactic disappointment taints the experience.
