Event Details

Saturday 18th June 2011, 5-7.30pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Over 75,000 people in the UK suffer from dementia.

This event presents a series of short films exploring the disease in its many forms, from the viewpoint of sufferers and carers alike.  Alongside affecting tales of loss, confusion and isolation, this wandering journey offers unexpected moments of comic absurdity, clarity of insight and joy of life.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers and scientists, as well as those who have experienced dementia, who will together investigate the thoughts and stories addressed in the films and look at other issues around this terrifying but common condition.

Rich Pickings is a curated film and thought event guiding hungry minds to new places. Each event takes one compelling topic and works it over through new and archive film, discussion, music, learning and play. Events are often challenging, sometimes unsettling, fun, fascinating and always surprising.
