“Alive Inside” is a stirring documentary film that follows social worker Dan Cohen, the founder of the non-profit organization, Music and Memory, as he fights against a broken healthcare system to demonstrate music’s ability to combat memory loss and restore a deep sense of self to those suffering from Alzheimer’s and Dementia and other neurodegenerative illnesses. Filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett chronicles individuals around the country who have been revitalized through the simple experience of listening to music. His camera reveals the uniquely human connection we find in music and its healing power.
Dr. David Reuben; Chief, Geriatric Medicine Director, Multicampus Program in Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology Professor, Department of Medicine, will join Dan Cohen in discussion following the screening.
