Brief Description of event:
Alive Inside follows Dan Cohen, a social worker, who decides on a whim to bring iPods to a nursing home. To his and the staff’s surprise many residents with memory loss seem to “awaken” when they are able to listen to music from their past. With great excitement, Dan turns to renowned neurologist Dr. Oliver Sacks, and we follow them both as we investigate the mysterious way music functions inside our brains and our lives. The documentary will be followed by a question and answer period led by CtityNews Anchor Cynthia Mulligan featuring Alive Inside Director, Micheal Rossato-Bennett and the Alzheimer Society CEO, Cathy Barrick.
