ABOUT THE FILM
“If your father no longer remembers you, does he stop being your father?” This is the poignant question posed by filmmaker Rick Minnich in the opening scene as he seeks answers for the reasons behind his father’s total amnesia following a minor car accident in 1990. A week after the accident, Richard Minnich no longer recognized any of his family or friends, and he couldn’t perform even the simplest of tasks. The doctors were baffled. His family members — three children from Richard’s first marriage and Richard’s second wife and their two children — were supportive, yet everyone instinctively knew something was terribly wrong. Sixteen years after the accident, Rick returns to his family’s home in California and begins to investigate, only to discover no one — not his two wives, his five children, or his former colleagues — truly knows the real Richard Minnich. Part memoir, part detective story, FORGETTING DAD uses home movie clips and probing interviews to create a deeply personal, painful look at how one man’s choices rippled through the lives of each member of his family.
