Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month:
Living With Alzheimer's Film Project.

November is Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. Spearheaded by executive producer David Shenk, the Living With Alzheimer's Project features four short films that seek to portray the responses of families living with Alzheimer's disease, in the hopes of supporting other families in the same situation:

De'mem'bunce (The Remembrance, dir. Roger Ross Williams;
an approach to Alzheimer's is designed for individuals
from NC's Gullah culture who have a proud tradition of self-reliance)

My Little Friends
(dir. Megan Mylan;
older adults with Alzheimer's interact with children)

Let the Band Play On
(dir. Naomi Boak;
a therapeutic dance program has wide-ranging effects)

A Place Called Pluto
(dir. Steve James; a reporter confronts the disease)
