Der Konfabulator
Timo Menke

Der Konfabulator is a true story about fathers and sons. Quote from the video: ‘By looking at old photographs together with your family you learn about your life…you were married, you had children, but it’s not according to your own experience…but some kind of documentary film..’ ‘Yes there is this so called meta-memory and there are those people who don’t remember. That’s called confabulation. They just make it up.’
