“Daddy, Daddy! Don’t let me go!” In her 2011 feature documentary Connected, Tiffany Shlain recalls going on a childhood ski trip with her father, Leonard. As their chair lift ascends the summit, she falls out of her seat. Her father grabs her by her jacket and holds on but there are rocky cliffs ahead. He tells her it’s safer to let her go over the snow. Tiffany begs her father not to. He looks into her eyes and says, “You’re going to be OK”. He lets go.
