MEMORY: WEAVER OF LIFE

Japan, 1994 (MIFF 1995, Science Programme)

Director: Kenji Kikue

While studying at Cambridge University, Jeremy suddenly lost the ability to remember events occurring in the immediate past. Drawing on the experience of Jeremy and the lives of oth­ers, we learn how memory creates our sense of existence. Exciting computer graphics illustrate the way neurons process and store memory and why memories worsen with age. An out­standing Japanese production made for an international audience.
