Last year Filmmaker Jan Thijssen followed René Daniëls closely, which resulted in the documentary Memoires van een vergeetal (Memoirs of a forgetful person). During the term of the solo exhibition of René Daniëls this documentary is on display at the Auditorium of the Van Abbemuseum.
Last year, film maker Jan Thijssen followed René Daniëls closely. He filmed him in Eindhoven, took him to places of his past (New York, Paris, Ghent), shows the current struggle of Daniëls with his disability and combined this with pictures of Daniëls in his younger years. The result is the documentary Memoires van een vergeetal (Memoirs of a forgetful person), a penetrating portrait of an artist who, after his haemorrhage and rehabilitation has found his own way to share his thoughts and images.
