Event Details

ARTZ Philadelphia presents two films that will challenge and inspire you to understand dementia in a new way.

About the films:
Moment to Moment (Jury Prize for Best Short, 2019 San Francisco DocFest; Special Jury Award at 2019 IFFBoston)

This short film follows Carl and Susan, scientist and artist, respectively, as they navigate the challenges of Carl’s Alzheimer’s diagnosis. Unable to engage in the scientific inquiry of his prior career, Carl finds solace in his basement, dismantling discarded electronics in search of the valuable copper inside. What begins as a perhaps questionable behavior evolves into a shared artistic collaboration, as Susan turns the copper into art.

Love is Listening: Dementia Without Loneliness A Memory Bridge Documentary

This hour-long film brings globally recognized authorities in the arts, science, and spiritual traditions together to reveal how we can move from fear to being with people with dementia–indeed, with anyone who disturbs us. This documentary marks a new day in our understanding of what it means to truly listen.

Filmmakers Michael Attie (Moment to Moment) and Michael Verde (Love is Listening: Dementia Without Loneliness)will be present for a Q&A after the screenings.
