Film Streams and the Douglas County Health Center Foundation will present a special screening of ALIVE INSIDE at the Ruth Sokolof Theater. A panel discussion will follow this one-time showing.
An uplifting cinematic exploration of music and the mind, ALIVE INSIDE won the Audience Award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen, founder of the nonprofit organization Music & 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 it. Director Michael Rossato-Bennett visits family members who have witnessed the miraculous effects of personalized music on their loved ones, and offers illuminating interviews with experts including renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks and musician Bobby McFerrin.
Donations of used iPods for use in the Music & Memory program at the Douglas County Health Center will be accepted at the event.
