The director of In Search of Memory, a documentary outlining the life of Eric Kandel, was recently awarded the Bayerischer Filmpreis, Germany’s equivalent of the Academy Award (see our previous coverage). Petra Seeger accepted the prize, a “porcelain Pierrot,” during the awards ceremony on Jan. 15.
The film has been held over for three weeks at the IFC Center in New York and is scheduled to be shown in Cambridge, Mass. beginning April 23. Keep an eye out for it in your town, too.
