  • This disquieting documentary follows the life of a former stock trader who suffered a bout of amnesia on the New York City subway in 2002 and never fully recovered his former identity. Eventually diagnosed with a rare condition known as "retrograde amnesia," Doug Bruce was transformed into a quiet photography student--a marked contrast to his former self, according to friends and colleagues who appear here. A tale of a man who has truly been born again, UNKNOWN WHITE MALE presents a thoughtful, bittersweet reflection on identity.
