Today the einestages (“One Day”) department of Spiegel Online (the online wing of Der Spiegel – the German equivalent of Time Magazine) published a lengthy article about “Forgetting Dad,” outlining in detail the story of my father’s amnesia. The story is called “Der Mann, der sich vergaß” (“The Man Who Forgot Himself”)
and is accompanied by twelve photos with detailed captions. The article is in German, but hopefully it will be translated into English and published in Spiegel International
This is by far the most widespread press the film has received so far, and I’m ecstatic! Hopefully it will help get the word out about the film, and the issues of brain trauma it raises, and will help us get it shown in even more places.
Many thanks to Solveig Grothe for her loving detail in writing the story and putting together the photos. And thanks to Nils Beier
for hooking me up with Solveig and the terrific team of einestages.
