The 3rd episode of The Ripple Project: ONE series; A clinical look into a neurological experiment as neuroscientist Dr. Daniela Schiller, labors to discover the key to rewriting fearful memories — reconsolidation. From Daniela’s research laboratory in New York she begins her personal search and returns to her native Israel to compel her elderly father to reveal his Holocaust remembrance for the first time. What follows is a haunting exploration into the nature of memory, its power, its vulnerability, its promise and its generational effect.
We are proud to announce a new article in The New Yorker Magazine about Daniela Schiller. The fascinating article describes her amazing work, her incredible journey and how our film ties it all together. We wish to thank Michael Specter, the writer of the article.
