Forgetting Dad (trailer)

Richard Minnich wakes up one week after a car crash with total amnesia and starts to carve out a new life for himself – including remarrying. His son endeavours to find out why his father never got his memory back.

Sixteen years after his father lost his memory in a car accident, Minnich returns to California to investigate the traumatic events that have haunted his family.

As he attempts to understand the amnesia’s cause, the documentary turns into a detective-style story: when Minnich interviews affected family members, each new discovery leads to more questions.

The result is an intriguing and very personal look at the father’s new identity and the mystery surrounding it.

FORGETTING DAD | Directed by Rick Minnich, Matt Sweetwood (Germany, 2009). Opens in Berlin cinemas on June 3.
