The Goethe-Institut is adding a coda with selected German documentaries that have won the Goethe Documentary Prize @ DOK Leipzig Festival in recent years. A conversation about cultural specificity in documentary filmmaking and international vs. national festival programming.\r\nFORGET ME NOT (Germany\, 2013\, 88 min)\, directed by David Sieveking\, with Margarete Sieveking\, Malte Sieveking and David Sieveking\r\nToronto Premiere\r\nCo-presented by Rendezvous With Madness Film Festival\r\nSRG SSR Critics' Week Award Locarno 2012\r\n Special Jury Prize Documenta Madrid 2013\r\n Millenium Award Planete Doc Warsaw 2013\r\nIn FORGET ME NOT\, David Sieveking portrays the domestic care of his mother\, who\, like millions of others\, is suffering from Alzheimer’s. David’s parents were active in the student movement of the 1960s and led an “open relationship\,” which is now being tested in a dramatic way through the mother’s illness.\r\nThe changes taking place force the family to deal with its conflicts\, bringing them all closer together. With humour and candour\, David Sieveking’s family chronicle is characterized by unaffected participation and loving affection\, where the human being is at the centre of the story\, not the illness.\r\n“FORGET ME NOT is without doubt a very insightful\, respectful film. Sieveking does not exploit his mother’s slow decay\, but wants to set up a memorial and writes her a touching love letter-turned-film.” – Spiegel Online\r\n“FORGET ME NOT delivers a private story that resonates as a universal story of love\, loss\, rediscovery\, and family. It inspires and lifts up.” – KaramelKinema\r\nDavid Sieveking\, born in 1977\, studied Directing at the German Film and Television Academy Berlin (dffb) and worked as an editor\, 1st AD and actor for film and television.
