Eric & Brad Williams - "Unforgettable"

Eric & Brad Williams - "Unforgettable"

Premiere date: May 01, 2015

Give Brad almost any day within his lifetime and he can recall the minutiae, where he ate breakfast, whether it rained or snowed, what was on TV that night. Featured on many news programs, Brad is only the second person ever studied by neurologists for the newly-identified syndrome called "hyperthymesia", an extremely detailed form of autobiographical memory for events both global and personal, monumental and trivial. Filmmaker Eric Williams follows his brother Brad's travels as his rare mental gifts vault him from small-town anonymity to sudden and mid-life notoriety.
 

Biographies

Eric Williams|Director, "Unforgettable"
ERIC WILLIAMS is a screenwriter whose credits include MAD CITY, starring Dustin Hoffman and John Travolta, the VH1 film LIP SERVICE, and other wonderful, criminally unmade scripts.

Williams is a frequent contributor to the HUFFINGTON POST on the topics of entertainment, politics, PBS pledge drives, the stupid names parents give to their children, and whatever else pisses him off at a given moment.

A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Wisconsin – Madison, Williams squandered many vital years in the service of market research. During this time in the wilderness, he was also a film reviewer and reporter for Boxoffice magazine.

Marking him as either a multi-talented dilettante or a guy who can’t simply focus on doing one thing well, Williams is also a photographer and graphic designer whose work has been featured on the DVDs for the acclaimed TV series FREAKS AND GEEKS and the packaging of the 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN Talking Andy doll, a product initiated by Eric and his oldest brother, Greg.

UNFORGETTABLE marks his debut as a documentary filmmaker.
