“Memory” had its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival, where actor Peter Sarsgaard won the Volpi Cup for Best Actor for his performance in Michel Franco’s latest film. Acting opposite Jessica Chastain, Sarsgaard convincingly plays a man with dementia in a surprisingly uplifting human drama and love story where light can be found in the sometimes darkest places. He was kind enough to spend a few moments of his time following the film’s screening at the AFI Film Festival, talking with us about his performance in the film, working with Chastain, Franco, and more. Ketchup Entertainment will give the film an awards qualifying run on December 22nd before releasing it in more theaters on January 5th, 2024. It is eligible for your consideration in all categories, most notably in Best Supporting Actor for Sarsgaard. Please be sure to check out the film and enjoy this wonderful conversation. Thank you!
