see Alive Inside - 4:25pm at the Shattuck Sat Aug 9th

Hi Everyone,

We are going to try a matinee so that we can have a nice dinner after and not feel so stressed.  Dinner will be at a thai restaurant down the street from the cinema. They always have tables and it's quiet so we won't be wandering in the desert for 40 d 40 n like before. :-)  Oh the restaurant only takes cash.  I apologize about that, it's a good one though and not at all expensive.

I love the premise of this doc.  It's about how music can reach part of our brain even if the rest seems shut off.  I read a great book awhile back called Musicophilia by Dr. Oliver Sacks and it was fascinating.  I'm eager to learn more.  

So it's a life affirming doc that will certainly give us something to talk about. I hope to see you all there.

Please arrive by 4 so we can find seats.  It shouldn't be hard but I like to be prepared.

Thanks,

 Suzie


Alive Inside

 is a joyous exploration of our relationship with music and how it can re-awaken our souls to discover the deepest parts of humanity. This stirring documentary follows social worker Dan Cohen as he fights against a broken health care system to demonstrate music's ability to combat memory loss in patients with Alzheimer's and dementia, and return a deep sense of self to those suffering from it. Through illuminating conversations with experts such as renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks and musician Bobby McFerrin, and astonishing experiences with patients around the country, revitalized by their love of music, filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett has crafted an uplifting, feel-good cinematic experience that sweeps audiences up in its inspirational and moving story. Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, 

Alive Inside

leaves viewers humming, clapping and cheering.

    Riveting docu, that's food for thought. Post cinema Thai cuisine and chat were icing on the cake. Friendly, personable, and engaging conversation....

    This was a wonderful documentary, I urge you all to see it. It will change your mind about our culture but also give you a tool to help an older person or someone with dementia. We have a fantastic discussion after the film, that was the best part. I really appreciate everyone who came. I had a great time.
