‘Fantasy Land’ is a autobiographical essay film that follows the filmmaker’s journey in search of a childhood memory, lost somewhere in the magical world of Disney. Recalling a lost photo of a moment shared between the filmmaker and her late father at Disney World, she visits the amusement park in search of a reminder, an image, anything that might bring to mind a clear memory of a rare moment between a father and daughter. Memory, the innocence of childhood, and the loss of the latter are questioned and explored as she copes with the loss of her father and a non-existent ‘perfect’ and ideal childhood.
