Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Jul 27th at 3:15pm for Alive Inside at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Brian F. wearing a blue Gonzaga t-shirt and red North Face sneakers in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
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.
Director Michael Rossato-Bennett will be in attendance for a Q&A after the film. We cannot guarantee entrance if the showing sells out.
