Alive Inside – A Profound Film On Dementia & Music

 A Magical Film About

Dementia & Music


“I am so excited to go see this award winning documentary today with my good friend, Sara Barsel.  We are both passionate about changing the worlds perception of dementia and improving services to those dealing with it.  I’ve seen the trailers which are so powerful it’s almost impossible for a person not to be touched.

I will bring my kleenex with not because I will be sad, but for the joy that will seep out of me as I watch.  I encourage everyone to check out the “Alive Inside” website so you can see this film when it comes to your area.  It’s a shame it’s not in ever theater around the world, but with your help in raising awareness of the film and the power it has to help inspire so many maybe, just maybe it will be some day soon!”

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. Official Web Site
