This is a pretty tough watch but it’s also an extraordinarily powerful six minutes of film. Director Eliot Rausch has put together this poignant meditation on Alzheimer’s Disease. It intersperses an interview with a sufferer and his wife as they try to make sense of their plight with haunting clips of a young boy in a dream-like, dilapidated landscape. It’s beautifully shot and powerful without being overwrought. We often praise funny or quirky awareness-raising campaigns but if you’re going to be serious, this is precisely the way to do it.
