Alive Inside: A Story of Music and Memory A Film and Discussion

This remarkable documentary captures the power of music. Director Michael Rossato-Bennett: “Alive Inside is about how music has the capacity to go into the minds and the brains and the bodies of people with dementia and awaken parts of them that they haven’t touched in years, that their disease has robbed. We got to see human beings who were lost to the world and lost to themselves awaken, and it was music that did this.”
