Alive Inside: A Story of Music & Memory

Alive Inside: A Story of Music & Memory reveals a remarkable, music-based breakthrough in the therapy and treatment of dementia. Social worker Dan Cohen works with filmmaker Michael Rossato-Bennett to document the magical benefits of music for those who are left to languish in silence. Including conversations with renowned neurologist Oliver Sacks and musician Bobby McFerrin as well as powerful firsthand experiments, this inspiring film demonstrate how connecting the elderly to the music they love not only combats memory loss but also supplements a broken health-care system often indifferent to interpersonal connections.
